He is committed to transforming the translational research landscape, as demonstrated through his recent developments of a prototype called the Smart Oxygenation System, which cuts across both clinical and bench science. This system monitors patient oxygen levels and can alert medical staff remotely on a smart device if medical assistance is needed. In conjunction with his translational research efforts, Dr. Kinsky has considerable experience in human subjects research. He served as a member of UTMB's Institutional Review Board for eight years and has assisted in reviewing numerous clinical research studies to ensure subject safety and regulatory compliance.
