Alexander Tan Limkakeng Jr.
Associate Professor of Surgery

My personal research interest is finding new ways to diagnose acute coronary syndrome. In particular, I am interested in novel biomarkers and systems biology approaches to this problem. As director of acute care research for the Duke Division of Emergency Medicine, I study a wide variety of conditions. The common theme is that they all have a time-sensitive component. We work with researchers from many fields. One of my related areas of interest is in empirical bioethics and trial enrollment.
