  • Fluorescence spectroscopy (steady state, time resolved)
  • Mass spectrometry (electrospray, triple-quadrupole, ion trap)
Clinical Pharmacology
  • Infectious Diseases, Internal and Emergency Medicine
  • Adverse reactions, drug interactions, pharmacokinetics
    (antibiotics, antiviral & HIV drugs, sedatives, opiates, analgesics, antiinflammatory agents)
  • Clinicopathological correlation
