Primary fields of research
Transport of electrolytes, nonelectrolytes, and water across cell membranes with focus on the erythrocyte membrane
Some solutes and water are transported very rapidly across the red cell membrane that complicate the characterization of the transport process. I have developed a technique, the continuous flow tube method, that allows determination of half times of the transport processes in the millisecond range. The method is used to characterize transport kinetics of chloride, urea, glucose, and water that all use different pathways to cross the red blood cell membrane
