Part of his research has included the role of extracellular matrix proteins in early development. Furthermore, Dr. Sinning wrote a chapter in Molecular Biology of the Cardiovascular System in 1990 and has contributed articles to multiple professional journals. He has received multiple fellowships throughout his career and is a member of the American Association of Anatomy.
