Research Description

Dr. Adelstein is interested in two general areas of study: microbiology and forensic pathology. Recent studies include the role of benzalkonium chloride as a disinfecting agent in wounds, and the effects of activated macrophage supernatant on wound healing. Forensic pathology is another area of interest for Dr. Adelstein, and work includes evaluation of the mechanisms and manner of death.
