MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES. Expert has considerable experience with the production and use of monoclonal antibodies, in particular, those corresponding to autoantibodies associated with thyroid and other organ-specific autoimmune disorders. He also has a good understanding of their characterization, stability, cloning, and use in a variety of assays and as probes in vitro and on tissue slices, and for affinity purification of the corresponding target protein antigen.

IMMUNOLOGY. Expert has a good knowledge of immunology in all of its applied and basic areas, in particular: autoimmunity, autoantigen characterization, purification, and interactions between B- and T-cells in the development of autoimmune disease.

ANTIBODIES; SDS-PAGE. Expert has expertise and experience with autoantibody measurement, ELISA, dot blot, immunofluorescence, SDS-PAGE and Western blotting, 2-D gel electrophoresis for autoantibodies reactive with membrane purified, protein microsequencing, and recombinant tissue proteins. He is skilled with modifications of the various procedures such as nondenaturing native gel electrophoresis, sandwich ELISA, and immunofluorescence on tissue cells.

PROTEIN CHARACTERIZATION; PROTEIN PURIFICATION. A majority of Expert's career has been in the area of antigen (protein) purification and antibody testing. He has broad experience using many tests, especially gel electrophoresis, ELISA, and immunofluorescence. Expert's main chemical focus is antoimmunity and the role of antoantibodies and T-cell immunity in oxygen-specific and multisystem disorders.

IMMUNOLOGIC CYTOTOXICTY. Expert's secondary area of expertise is in the study of antibody and cellular cytotoxicity against tissue cells and its role in target damage in antoimmunity. This expertise has been used to study problems of stryroid and orbital antoimmunity. For many years, the main tissue that he has worked with is skeletal muscle, and he has a broad but detailed kowledge of muscle protein and muscle antoimmunity.
