Wisconsin first to test repeat drunken drivers with alcohol biomarkers | WisconsinWatch.org

Biomarker expert Paul Marques, senior research scientist at Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation in Maryland, said, "If you need to know what somebody's drinking level is and whether it's a public hazard, you need to use something that can get you objective information."

Marques is an advocate for using the tests, which provide a look back in time and assist with treatment, in conjunction with ignition interlocks, which prevent drunk people from driving in the moment.
"I look forward to a day when some state has the moxie to do a three-legged program: interlock, alcohol biomarker monitoring, and treatment for those who cannot change behavior on their own," he said.

Paul Marques

Senior Research Scientist II
...
Paul Marques began his research with questions concerning neuroactive and psychoactive substances in 1968. Over the years, he pursued questions on central nervous system control of neuroendocrine and visceral functioning, the pharmacology of drug action in the brain, the social consequences of drug and alcohol excess, and technologies that can detect, monitor and deter the behavior of those whose consumption of excessive amounts of these things endanger the public.
Paul's most recent studies involved the use of biological markers of alcohol use (such as phosphatidylethanol and ethylglucuronide) that can be recovered from blood, hair and urine. Measurement of these markers from convicted DWI driving offenders, who are required to use alcohol ignition interlock devices, formed the basis for two objective and independent sources of public risk exposure information: biological measures and behavioral monitoring of performance using the alcohol interlock data records.
His involvement with these topics evolved from earliest training in central nervous system drug actions, and central regulation of endocrine and temperature regulation. His Ph.D. topic (1973) was drug dependence research in animal models at the University of Arizona followed by 5 postdoctoral years at the University of Washington Departments of Medicine, and of Physiology & Biophysics, and the NIH Regional Primate Center. For 8 years, he was an Assistant Professor at Arizona in the Depts of Pharmacology and Addiction Studies. Marques joined PIRE/NPSRI in 1988, an environment with a rich complement of expertise in public health and safety research. With NIDA, NIAAA, RWJ, NHTSA, and Education Dep't funding, he examined maternal/perinatal drug exposure studies, long-term child neurobehavioral and learning outcomes following prenatal exposure, many studies of alcohol ignition interlock device effectiveness, blood biomarkers of alcohol consumption, adolescent drug-involvement, alcohol impairment estimation, field-sobriety evaluation studies, treatment outcome studies, technical approaches to monitoring drug exposure, hair analysis of drugs and alcohol, treatment retention and long-term follow-up, alcohol managed care, and development and evaluation of computer-conversion of risk assessment screening tools.

In 2007 Paul was awarded the annual Hingson Research to Practice Award from Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He has approximately 100 publications in the scientific literatures.
In 2016, Paul is largely retired and a member of the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Patrol in the Coronado National Forest Ranger District in Southern Arizona. Paul is also President of the Friends of Sabino Canyon, a 501C3 charitable organization that works to enhance, protect, and preserve the canyon's unique ecology.

Paul Marques

Senior Research Scientist II
...
Marques joined a division of PIRE (NPSRI) in 1988, an environment that had a rich complement of expertise in public health and safety research. In these areas, Marques' established expertise with research awards related to perinatal drug exposure studies, long-term child neurobehavioral and educational outcomes following prenatal exposure, many studies of alcohol ignition interlock devices effectiveness, blood biomarkers of alcohol consumption, adolescent drug-involvement, alcohol impairment estimation, field-sobriety evaluation studies, treatment outcome studies, technical approaches to monitoring drug exposure, hair analysis of drugs and alcohol, treatment retention and long-term follow-up, alcohol managed care, and development and evaluation of computer-conversion of risk assessment screening tools.
In the past 5 years, projects have included: evaluation of electrochemical transdermal alcohol monitoring devices, hangover and fatigue effects on paramedic rescue skills; interlocks on motorcycles, a multinational project involving laboratories in the US, Canada, Sweden, Germany and Luxembourg predicting driver alcohol risk profiles based on convergence of blood, urine and hair alcohol biomarkers, BAC tests in the interlock record, and psychometric assessments.
Marques' research has been supported by NIDA, NIAAA, RWJ and NHTSA. He is a member of the Executive Board of ICADTS (International Council of Alcohol Drugs and Traffic Safety) where he also chairs the Working Group on Ignition Interlocks and co-chairs the group on Alcohol Biomarkers. In addition, he holds membership in AAAS, RSA, CPDD, and the NRC's Transportation Research Board (TRB) Committee on Alcohol and Drugs. In 2007 Paul was awarded the annual Hingson Research to Practice Award from Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He has approximately 100 publications in the scientific literatures.
