His laboratory has engaged in three major types of scientific work:
1. On the fundamental reactions of the translational apparatus and the roles of particular tRNA and mRNA sequences in translational efficiency and accuracy.
2. On the selection of particular RNA structures with binding or catalytic activity, and the relation of those activities to the origin of the genetic code, or translation in a larger sense.
3. On the nature of RNA affinity for phospholipid bilayers and on the role of such membrane RNAs in biology.
