1952: Ph.D. Thesis on the chemistry of ribonucleic acid (RNA)

1952 - 1955: Further work on RNA

1956 - 1957: Effects of whole-body X-irradiation on the metabolism of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and RNA in rat and mouse tissues

1958 - 1960: Chromatographic fractionation of DNA and RNA, especially, amino acid transfer RNA

1961 - 1962: Sensitization of bacteria to ultraviolet (UV) and X-irradiation by incorporating 5-bromouracil into DNA instead of thymine: the biology and the chemistry

1962 - 1969: DNA-protein crosslinking after the UV irradiation of bacteria: its discovery, chemistry, and biological importance

1962 - : Photochemistry and radiation chemistry of DNA, pyrimidines, and amino acids

1966 - : Teaching users of lasers what light does and does not do. Bad papers are published on Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) by people not trained in scientific methodology and in photobiology

1968 - : DNA repair processes after UV and X-irradiation; especially those that require genetic recombination: identification and genetic control

1976 - : Radiation and spontaneous mutagenesis: mechanisms and genetic control
