Dr. McKay's research is focused on identifying biomarkers associated with postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction. One current project is designed to determine if metabolic and nutritional factors are associated with adverse clinical outcomes following surgery. Dr. McKay's interests also include investigating the roles of oxidative stress, mitochondrial function, cell-cell signaling, and extracellular matrix deposition in pathologies affecting the eye and brain using cell and tissue culture models.
