        Academic Background

        MD, 1962, Chicago Medical School

        Chief, Department of Hospital Laboratories and Clinical Pathology

        Cytoskeletal alterations during normal aging process

        Altering physician behavior towards more appropriate use of clinical laboratory services

        My involvement in cytoskeletal alterations which occur during the normal aging process remains a majorMichael Snyder focus for my research career. However, since arriving on the scene at UMASS, I have also become interested in mechanisms to alter physician behavior with a final result of more appropriate utilization of clinical laboratory services.


        Application of Quality Management in Hospital Laboratories
        Appropriateness of Laboratory Testing and Cost Efficiency


        Red cell defects, red cell metabolism, membrane function and how they relate in normal and abnormal conditions and how it effects membrane function. Secondary area would be monocytes and red cells in normal and hemolytic disease.
