Research & Publications
Dr. Marzinke's primary research interest is in the development of bioanalytical tools to better characterize pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamics relationships. He has expertise in the development of liquid chromatographic-tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS/MS) methods for the quantification of small molecules, including anti-infectives, in a variety of biological matrices. His laboratory focuses on studies aimed at understanding the pharmacology of long-acting antiretroviral drug delivery systems, the use of antiretrovirals as pre-exposure prophylactic agents, and the use of drugs as topical microbicides. Dr. Marzinke is also interested in the development and incorporation of targeted pharmacogenetics testing into the clinical environment.
