Since 1978, Dr. Lavoie has been involved in the study of the blood marks and images of the shroud. His work is outlined below. He has given many presentations on the Shroud of Turin and has appeared on over 150 radio and TV shows including MSNBC and the TODAY SHOW.

Presently, he is working on a new book on the Shroud of Turin which will include new information gathered during his years of graduate courses in biblical studies (2004-2007). This book will also include a study of the shroud image in the context of Jesus' life.
