    He has been in private practice, full time faculty and done basic science research simultaneously following graduation from CU SOM (with Honors) and residency training at Cornell's NY Hospital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital. He was Assistant Clinical Professor in OB/GYN and Pathology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons (Under Ralph M. Richart and in Private Practice with Harold E.

    His most recent is the Chapter on The Placenta (2012) in Sternberg's / Mills Histology for Pathologists, The Raven Press, having authored the previous editons with Kurt Benirschke and in the most recent with the addition of Dr. Miriam Post.

    He has performed basic science research with David I. Hirsh, G. Barry Pierce, David M. Prescott, Harold E. Fox and Deborah Wolgemuth. Research has focused on technologies for embryo micro- manipulation (murine and C. elegans) which has lead to current IVF protocols, the discovery of a novel Homeo-Box gene transcript, and published the first description of the mechanism for vertical transmission of HIV in Humans-featured as a lead article in the Lancet (c) 1990. His current Text is Vol. 23 in Contemporary Issues of Surgical Pathology- "Pathology of the Human Placenta" (c) 1999 by Churchill-Livingstone. He has written a white paper for Ethicon on reduction of surgical morbity.
