“After hours of research and collaborations with institutions such as the Mayo Clinic, I am hopeful that this book provides a basis for improving detection and measurement of M-proteins,” said Keren. “Mass spectrometry is the future of monoclonal protein evaluation in laboratory medicine.”

As well as countless hours of research and writing, Keren also spent time creating many of the illustrations depicted throughout the book.

Dr. Keren began his career at U-M in 1978 before becoming the Medical Director of Warde Medical Laboratory, which provided Keren with a broader view of clinical laboratory testing.
