Biography

William Potter's research interests involve the development of non-invasive diagnostics. Presently, he is working on a joint project with the Psychology Department to determine biochemical markers which correlate to an individual's personality. The research is focused on the individual's susceptibility to stress and their fear response. They are studying the specific genetic and bio-markers that are related to the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis). Theses markers are collected from exhaled breath condensate, non-stimulate saliva and buccal swabs and include cortisol, SLC6A4, COMT, MAO-A, BDNF and CRH receptor genetics and other more novel saliometric parameters. This research is connected with ongoing research on post-traumatic stress in rape and abuse victims in collaboration with the TITAN Institute and with pain research that is trying to evaluate the factors responsible for each individual's sensitivity to pain. Their collaborative work is an extension of previous studies on the development of non-invasive diagnostics using high resolution laser spectroscopy (TDLAS). These studies focused on the evaluation of oxidative stress, cancer biomarkers and environmental pollutants. The breath exhalation studies included diagnostic molecules such as nitric oxide and formaldehyde.
