David studies biomimetic macromolecluar surface grafting to improve biocompatibility and reduce pathological responses of blood contact with coated vascular biomaterials. HE investigates the molecular basis for neuroprotein in cerebrovascular gas embolism, with a particular interest in the role of exogenous surfactants in altering mechanotransduction and cell signaling events to attenuate endothelial cell injury/death and mitigate CNS injury in cerebrovascular gas embolism. David combines experimental and computational techniques to asses design parameters for optimization of molecular recognition events governing carrier binding to vascular endothelium for targeted nanocarrier drug delivery applications.
