Dr A. Vlachos from the DBAR and others have published numerous articles on DBA. The contribution of their work to the understanding of DBA is unprecedented. Currently there are numerous research projects underway, and we will continue to provide links to research in the field of DBA. Below are links to DBAR articles. If there are any specific questions related to research please contact us and we will do our best to provide accurate evidence and assist in any way we can.
