About Dan:

Dr. Daniel S. Kohane obtained his MD and a PhD in Physiology from Boston University. He subsequently completed residencies in Pediatrics (Boston Children’s Hospital) and Anesthesiology (Massachusetts general Hospital), followed by a fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care (Boston Children’s Hospital). He is currently a Senior Associate in Pediatric Critical Care at Boston Children’s Hospital, where he directs the Laboratory for Biomaterials and Drug Delivery, and a Professor of Anesthesiology at Harvard Medical School. The LBDD has three main broad areas of research: drug delivery, biomaterials, and nanomedicine, with considerable overlap between these. Some of the lab’s projects are driven by developing new technologies, others by trying to find cures for specific diseases. Pain, otitis media and other otic diseases, ophthalmic diseases, peritoneal adhesions, sepsis, and cancer are among the medical conditions that receive the most attention in the lab.
