My research interests are broad, including a number of areas in biomaterials and biomechanics. My doctoral research concerned the histological and mechanical evaluation of bone ingrowth and appositional attachment mechanisms to porous coated Ti-6,4 and LTI carbon femoral endoprostheses using the canine model. I have also directed projects involving bone attachment to ceramic and carbon dental implants, retrieved porous coated implants in the human, metallurgical evaluations of retrieved stainless steel intramedullary rods, qualitative evaluation of articular cartilage wear against Ti-6,4, carbon, silicone, and zirconia hemiarthroplasties, and tissue reaction studies in response to Bion and hydroxylapatite in canine and rat models. Engineering Materials, Prefabricated Systems. My laboratory aims to develop an understanding of the interrelationships between the mechanical and physicochemical behavior of biological systems. The main thrust of this research involves investigations of the pulmonary system. Mechanotransduction and signaling propagation: sensor cells sensing mechanical forces and transmitting signals to effector cells to induce physiological or pathological responses. Our group focuses on (1) bone mechanotransduction and intercellular communication among bone cells; (2) endothelial mechanotransduction and its role in vascular diseases; and (3) cellular mechanics and cytoskeleton dynamics. Current research focuses on modeling the electrodiffusion of ions in neurons, which is important for understanding signal transduction, signal transmission and plasticity. The model uses three- dimensional reconstructions of cell tissue obtained through electron tomography. The reconstructions are then used to create a computational mesh, where differential equations are solved, yielding the electric profile of the cellular compartments. Our group utilizes tissue engineering and related technologies for the study of central nervous system (CNS) regeneration and development of treatments for CNS disorders. In particular, we are interested in the relationship between the three dimensional architecture of regenerating CNS tissue and its functionality. My primary research aim is to apply in vivo, in vitro, and computational bioengineering approaches to better understand the regulation of adult microvascular patterning and the functional relationships between microvascular remodeling and other network remodeling processes such as neurogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. My goal as the Director of K-12 Outreach for the School of Science and Engineering is to match the resources at Tulane University with the needs in the education community for grades K through 12. Cell and tissue biomechanics and mechanobiology Nanoscale biotransport through biological tissues Ocular biomechanics and biotransport in glaucoma Quantitative microscopy and stereology My research interests include biological systems modeling, medical instrumentation, and the teaching of biomedical engineering design using assistive technology. Specific interests include using measurements of thoracic sound transmission to determine noninvasively some physical characteristics of the lungs and great vessels. Telemedicine, neural stimulation, implantable monitoring devices.

Charge Transfer and Current-Induced Magnetism, II. Optical Energy Transfer and Light Scattering in Photonic Materials, III. Theoretical Modeling of Inhomogeneous Kinetics and Thermodynamics of Amorphous Solids and Macromolecules Bio-Organic Chemistry Principal research interests include development of a general synthetic route to dithiolene ligands, synthesis of novel multiuclear dithiolene complexes as new materials, design of new, sterically hindered thiolates to support mononuclear late transition metal complexes, and development of new multidentate chiral ligands for enantioselective oxo and imido group transfer reactions to organic substrates. The research interests of my group are primarily in the area of synthetic organic chemistry and the synthesis of biologically active natural products. These interests are interconnected, since the synthesis of complex natural products frequently demands that new synthetic procedures be explored and developed. One projects include the preparations of naturally occurring oligio sacharides as well as various environmental studies. Dr. Fink's research interest in this area focuses primarily in the synthetic and mechanistic chemistry of silicon, boron and related elements. Organic, Materials and Biochemistry. Macromolecular Architecture, Material Applications, Medical Applications. My research program focuses on two main topics in theoretical chemistry. The first research area involves the development and testing of semiclassical approximations for the quantum evolution of complex systems. Semiclassical methods, which utilize information from classical trajectories to obtain approximate quantum mechanical energies, wavefunctions, transition probabilities, etc., provide computationally very useful procedures for calculations involving the motion of atomic and molecular systems. The second area investigates the manner in which solvents influence the vibrational frequencies and population relaxation in liquids and dense gases. These interactions are important because, for instance, the equilibration of vibrational populations plays a significant role in determining the response of condensed phase systems to external perturbations. Bio-Organic Chemistry, Nanobiotechnology, Molecular Recognition and Self-Assembly Research efforts in our group revolve around using lasers to initiate and study chemistry. A variety of lasers are employed to investigate problems in areas ranging from gas-phase Doppler spectroscopy to laser-assisted thin-film growth. Mass spectrometers are used extensively for product detection, but materials characterization methods such as x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) are enjoying increasing popularity within our group.

A variety of lasers are employed to investigate problems in areas ranging from gas-phase Doppler spectroscopy to laser-assisted thin-film growth. Mass spectrometers are used extensively for product detection, but materials characterization methods such as x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) are enjoying increasing popularity within our group. Our current research activities fall into two areas. The first involves the spectroscopic characterization of self organizing systems such as reversed micelles and organogels as well as the utilization of these systems for the synthesis of nanoparticles, polymers and novel composite materials. Spectroscopic techniques include IR, NMR, EPR, and fluorescence under steady state and time resolved conditions. The second area of interest involves the environment fate and transport of heavy metals, Pb in particular. The goal of this research is a basic understanding of chemical principals that control the absorption and release of heavy metals in a contaminated environment. Analytical methods include AA, ICP, X-ray fluorescence, and ICP mass spectrometry. We are developing novel methods for measuring 3D structures of molecules in solution at physiological temperatures. We are also interested in applying these new structural methods and target the mechanisms of protein and enzyme biological functioning. Three-dimensional structure arrangement and dynamics of structural fluctuations play key roles in enzymes functioning. Nonlinear femtosecond spectroscopy methods, such as two-dimensional IR spectroscopy, permits measuring quick snapshots of the structural distribution of molecules in solution. Our research includes considerable organic and inorganic synthesis. Our recent efforts have focused on preparing clusters of visible light absorbing chromophores that may be used to "harvest" light. Such light harvesting arrays can be used to channel energy into electrochemical cells designed to convert light to electrical energy (photoelectrochemical cells). The types of chromophores we have examined include porphyrins , phthalocyanines and a variety of transition metal complexes. Through a combination of synthetic and laser spectroscopic investigations, our group studies the factors that influence the reactivity and stability of these classes of visible chromophores. We employ laser spectroscopic techniques to study chemically interesting species in cold molecular beams. Lately, work has centered on highly reactive organosilicon intermediates, particularly silylenes, silyl radicals, and their possible reaction products with selected reactants.
