Steve is presently engaged almost full-time in experimental physiology at USDA approved private biomedical animal research institution, Critical Care Research (Rancho Cucamonga, California). This research involves development of resuscitation physiology involving delivery of lipid-soluble drugs to the resuscitated brain (dog model), and also experimental hypothermia induction for resuscitation and cerebral protection using post-resuscitation hypothermic perfluorocarbon lung lavage (also dog model). Some of this research has been published in Resuscitation 50:189-204, 2001.
His experience with formulation of microemulsions of lipid soluble drugs for resuscitation has led him to pursue collaborative ventures involving microemulsification technology for delivery of water insoluble drugs and nutrients for animal feed, veterinary and medical applications. He is pursuing patents for microemulsion formulations of CoQ10 and propofol.
