Achievements:
1988-1996 Participation in design and creation of California's Quality Assurance program for cytogenetics laboratories.
1982           Adapted GENFILES (mainframe DBMS) onto a microprocessor computer. Parts of this system are still used (1996).
1982           Developed the UCSF Cytogenetics Laboratory into one of the world's best high case-load prenatal diagnosis laboratories.

1968           First determination in animals of the RBE for negative pions.
1968           Co-author of the definitive review of LSD "genetic damage"
