We invented a device that measures ammonia from a small drop of blood, and are now testing it with patients. Rapid diagnosis will prevent brain damage in patients with dysfunctional urea cycles due to genetic mutation, liver dysfunction, or cancer chemotherapy.
We are studying the megadalton protein complex that catalyzes DNA double-strand break repair pathway of nonhomologous end joining.
