The major interests of Dr. Rollins' laboratory are in development of sensitive and specific analytical methods using liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry for measurements of drugs in a variety of human tissues. A particular research interest is investigation of the binding and incorporation of drugs of abuse into hair, with the view towards the potential forensic application in humans.
