David grew up in Michigan where he attended the University of Michigan and double majored in Biochemistry and Hebrew. After completing his undergraduate work in 2002, David traveled west to St. Louis and enrolled in Washington University’s Medical Scientist Training Program. For his doctoral research, David studied urinary tract infection pathogenesis in the lab of Dr. Scott Hultgren. After completing the MD/PhD program in 2010, he joined the Pediatrics Residency Program at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. David fast-tracked into Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship in 2012 and joined the laboratory of Dr. David Hunstad, developing new murine models of Klebsiella pneumoniae pathogenesis. David is now utilizing these models to learn more about Klebsiella virulence in hopes of developing alternative treatments for this increasingly antibiotic resistant organism. In his spare time, David is often found training or racing his bike. He lives in Frontenac with his wife, Diane, and his two children, Marni and Joshua.
