Herron Research Group

Research Interests:

Dr. Herron is interested in translational research – specifically, translating innovative near-patient diagnostics technologies from the laboratory into the clinic. Presently, his research is focused in three areas:

  • optical biosensor applications in biodefense, diagnostics, companion diagnostics, environmental and food testing, and personalized medicine
  • high-throughput homogeneous fluorescence assays for use in biodefense, diagnostics, and quality control and assurance
  • dynamic light scattering as a means of detecting intravenous (IV) drug incompatibilities, when co-administered through the same IV line
