Professor Lam has published over 70 refereed articles and 90 conference proceedings on the field of infection control, psychometric testing and elderly care.  He developed the Compliance with Standard Precautions Scale (CSPS) for measuring compliance with infection control practice among nursing in clinical settings.  This scale has been translated into more than nine languages and adopted for the use in over 26 countries.  Furthermore, he coordinated a multi-country comparative study of compliance with infection control practice among nursing staff from nine regions. For his expertise in mask and N95 respirators, he developed the first local Particle Filtration Efficiency (PFE) system for screening the quality of filtrating materials, like face masks, which the result of quality of 160 different brands of face mask have been published in American Journal of Infection Control.  Since 2011, he has published several impactful researches on N95 respirators among healthcare workers in clinical setting.  Recently, he has invented new N95 respirators (with filed Patent) as alternatives with better fit to Chinese healthcare workers.
