Herscu Laboratory & Consulting

Herscu Laboratory is a multi-disciplinary collaborative community devoted to high quality research. Our aim is to elucidate underlying principles and develop effective applications in both medicine and education. Areas of particular interest include pediatrics, neurology, immunology, oncology, veterinary medicine, biology of complex systems, personalized medicine, integrative medicine, and optimizing education for all kinds of learners.

In addition to our core staff of researchers, we work in conjunction with a number of other individuals, research organizations, private companies, and schools. Research at Herscu Laboratory spans a wide range of methodologies from primary clinical trials and basic laboratory research to literature review and data mining. By bringing together cutting-edge thinkers from across the sciences, we take advantage of the power of interdisciplinary thinking and research.

The general research approach at Herscu Laboratory is driven by the integration of scientific ideas across related fields of biology and medicine, with the goal of generating models of understanding that can influence research, clinical application, and education. Multi-disciplinary research is currently on-going in the following areas:

Pharmaceutical Research and Development
Public Health
Military Medical Applications
Veterinary Medicine
Biology of Complex Systems
Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)
Evidenced-based Research in Classical Homeopathy
