David (email@example.com) is a Research Fellow and Principal Instructor at the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). He is passionate about multi-disciplinary Engineering for Biomedicine. Specifically, these include micro/nano-technology for skin applications (i.e. abnormal scars); representative technology and expertise include:
- Microneedles for Keloids/hypertrophic scars
- Human tissue and rabbit models
- Skin-penetrating Nanotechnology for diagnosis and gene regulation
- Molecular probes with rapid detection kinetics
He also serves as an Editorial board member of the society for laboratory automation and screening (SLAS) Technology journal and contributes a quarterly ‘Literature Highlights’ column.
