- Title Emeritus Professor
I began in 1971 as a postdoc for Marrott Sinex, the Chair of Biochemistry at that time with a second postdoc in Carl Franzblau’s lab beginning in 1973, followed by a Young Investigator Award, NHLBI. Besides my current responsibilities as Assistant Dean of Admissions for the Medical School, I am department representative on the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee. I also teach in MD512/OH751 (Dental Biochemistry) the myoglobin and hemoglobin section and supervise a student presented case on sickle cell disease in dental medicine.
His research interests include the biochemical basis for elastin destruction in pulmonary emphysema, a long held interest stemming from collaboration between the Pulmonary Section at Boston University School of Medicine and the Biochemistry Department. Dr. Stone has initiated a number of other fruitful collaborations with clinical departments in the Medical Center, such as GI and Rheumatology, based on a clinical assay of elastin degradation developed in his laboratory and resulting in two US patents.
