He is actively performing first-in-human randomized trials based on extensive pilot studies (Circulation 2011 and the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology 2015).

He has performed pilot and proof-of-concept studies, retrospective and prospective (>10,000 women, > 30,000 blood samples) studies, and planned and performed interventional trials. A diagnostic test his team developed is currently in the clinic in Europe.
