David's research interests tend to center on the mechanisms for changes in gene transcription. His past research experiences have hit many levels of immune or inflammatory processes. While learning laboratory technique in Dr. Eric Sasso's lab at the University of Washington, he studied VH3 gene polymorphisms. Later, in Dr. Ignacio Sanz's lab, he studied antinuclear Lupus antibodies for 2 years. At UTMB he worked with a retroviral transfection model in Aubrey Thompson's lab and followed that with glucocorticoid signaling in Dr. Brad Thomposon's lab.
