In his waning years as a creative individual, he intends to develop several research directions. For example:

1. Continue to develop strategies to promote PLTL and to fund its self-sustainability on every campus that adopts this strategy to promote student assisted learning. He has started to implement the strategy on the UTEP campus.

2. Use hi biochemical expertise to develop the IP strategy to find new antibiotics. He may have a method!

3. Develop new IP related to magnesium peroxyacetate. He has made an Invention Disclosure to UTEP in this area.

4. Promote and develop Chromat-O-Art into a new industry. An I-CORPS proposal has been submitted to NSF.

These thrusts are all well on their way to fruition. Working on all of these indeed will develop Intellectual Property for the betterment of the university that gave him the opportunity to address his research philosophy questions.
