Steven Soldin is a Senior scientist at NIH. He is also an Adjunct Full Professor at Georgetown University in the Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism. He has published 271 papers. His research interests focus on the role of specificity in improving patient diagnosis and treatment. He recently showed a statistically significant diurnal fluctuation in steroid concentrations for all steroids tested except progesterone. The extent of this diurnal variation is so large that it necessitates development of time dependent reference intervals. The role of mass spectrometry in improving patient diagnoses in hypothyroidism (5.7 % of population) and adrenal disease (7.4% of population) has been demonstrated.
