David Hwang is a pathologist at UHN and an Associate Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology at the University of Toronto. He completed MD and PhD degrees at the University of Toronto, followed by residency training in Anatomical Pathology. Complementing his clinical practice in pulmonary pathology, his primary research focus is in pulmonary infectious disease. He is currently funded by the National Sanitarium Association to study bacterial community-wide gene expression and its role in antibiotic responses and resistance in the cystic fibrosis lung. He is a member of CIHR Emerging Teams investigating nanotechnology-enabled diagnosis and treatment (led by Dr. Gang Zheng, UHN) and engaged in metagenomic profiling of the cystic fibrosis lung (led by Dr. David Guttman, University of Toronto). In addition to research in pulmonary infections, Dr. Hwang is also involved in lung transplantation and repair research in collaboration with investigators of the Latner Thoracic Research Laboratories and with investigators from the Toronto Lung Transplant Program.
