    Dr. Menacherry started teaching at the University of New Haven in August 2011 as adjunct in Chemistry. Since January 2013, he has been serving as a Professional In Residence at the university. Dr Menacherry is an entrepreneur, having co-founded two companies: Northeast Bioanalytical laboratories, Hamden, CT which is engaged in quantitation of drugs and metabolites from specimens obtained from clinical trials, and Computer Hospital Inc.,West Haven, CT which is engaged in developing mobile computing for clinical trials and patient enrollment. Prior to starting his own business, Dr Menacherry was employed by major pharma: Abbott Laboratories, IL and Bayer Pharmaceuticals, CT. He was a group leader in the pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism departments of these companies.

    Dr. Menacherry’s research interests are in the field of pharmaceutical chemistry, toxicology, and applications of LC tandem mass spectrometry. His current projects include detection of drugs and metabolites in blood and tissue and the development of databases for tracking laboratory data.
