Dr. David F. Katz, Nello L. Teer, Jr. Professor of Biomedical Engineering, in the Edmund T. Pratt, Jr. School of Engineering, Duke University

Dr. Katz's research interests emphasize methods for prophylaxis against STD's, including topical microbicides, and for contraception. Core perspectives and approaches include mass transport phenomena and biofluid mechanics; rheology and imaging, both in vitro and in vivo. These are integrated to fundamental biological, pathological, and clinical processes and needs for improvement.
