Dr. Morrissey is interested in translating lab-based discoveries and assay refinements to real world clinical settings in underserved regions/populations to further refine the technology and better serve people who have no traditional access to health care. His work includes enhancing the measurement of biomarkers of kidney disease and the development of refrigeration-free biosensors of kidney injury and Zika virus infection. His lab work has also developed a means of refrigeration-free blood and urine biomarker preservation. This enables collection of biospecimens in urban/rural clinics and in low/middle income countries thereby extending diagnostic services to underserved populations.
