RMIL is directed by
Robert K. Lantz, Ph.D. and Patricia L. Sulik, Ph.D.

Dr. Lantz received his B.Sc. from the University of Michigan, his M.T. (ASCP) from Charity Hospital at New Orleans, and his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Michigan State University. His scientific publications encompass a great range of subjects, including drug metabolism, analytical technique optimization, pharmacokinetic modeling, and HPLC/MS/MS of drugs. He has over thirty years' experience in hospital, clinical research, pharmaceutical industry, and academic environments. He has testified in courts throughout the country and before the United States Sentencing Commission. He is a member of the Society of Forensic Toxicologists, the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, and the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists. He also developed the first hormonal pregnancy test for camelids (llama, camels, alpaca, guanaco, etc.).

Dr. Sulik received her B.Sc. from Michigan State University and her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Colorado State University. Her research interests and publications include drug metabolism, chromatography, spectroscopy, SEM/EDX analysis of gunshot residue, and drug assay development. She has been employed in both academic and industrial environments and has testified as an expert in Federal, and state, and military  courts in the US and in Europe.  Dr. Sulik's professional activities have included serving as the Conference Chair for the Rocky Mountain Conference on Analytical Chemistry and as the Chair of the RMC Pharmaceutical Analysis Symposium. She is a member of the American Chemical Society, the Society for Applied Spectroscopy, the Society of Forensic Toxicologists, and other professional organizations.
Dr. Lantz and Dr. Sulik gave an invited presentation on the practical aspects of LCMS analysis to the Society of Forensic Toxicologists  (October, 2007).  We also have two new publications on the LCMS analysis of antibiotics in milk, and Dr. Sulik was recently invited to present discussions on the errors inherent in alcohol measurements.  Dr. Lantz also was invited to present a discussion of the synthetic cannabinoid alternatives at the American Chemical Society National Meeting (2011).
