Alexander Tan Limkakeng Jr.
Professor of Emergency Medicine

My personal research interest is finding new ways to diagnose acute coronary syndrome . In particular, I am interested in novel biomarkers and precision medicine approaches to this problem. I also have an interest in sepsis and empirical bioethics. As Vice Chair of Clinical Research for the Duke University Department of Emergency Medicine, I also work with researchers from many fields spanning global health, innovation, clinical trials, basic discovery, and translational research. The common element is time-sensitive health conditions. I help to oversee a team of research professionals in multicenter emergency department studies funded by the National Institutes of Health, foundations, and industry partners.
