He is currently an affiliated researcher with the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and has a long-standing bond with the Shoals Marine Laboratory, a joint venture between Cornell University and the University of New Hampshire. He belongs to many scientific and professional societies, is a President Emeritus of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, and is an advisor to the board of the Authors Guild.
Betrayed is Dr. Martini's first foray into historical nonfiction. Over seven years, what started as a wartime story about his father evolved as he uncovered declassified WWII and post-war documents held in the national archives of the US, UK, France, and Germany. The section of his website that is devoted to Betrayed includes resource notes, commentary, supporting documents, and slideshows for each chapter.
