Dr. Jay has investigated the lubricating properties of synovial fluid and what role it may play in degenerative joint diseases. He confirmed that lubricin is a mucinous glycoprotein and showed that the glycosylations on this molecule provide for a lower coefficient of friction between both biological and non-biological rubbing surfaces. He is interested in more immediate translational studies in the areas of automated pulsus paradoxus monitoring in emergency medicine. He has developed and/or tested a portable hyperbaric chamber system, bedside co-oximetry, and other novel devices.
