David’s area of expertise is in the diagnosis and management of children with rare diseases. A rare disease is a clinically serious disorder affecting fewer than 1 in 2000 people, thus approximately 6-8% of Australians are affected by a rare disease. 80% of rare diseases are genetic, with the majority affecting children. The diagnosis of a rare disease is often delayed because of their individual small numbers and complex nature. David is a passionate rare disease advocate and engages with multiple rare disease support groups.
David is currently involved in multiple research projects aimed at novel disease discovery, improved diagnostic testing and treatments for children with Inherited Genetic Disorders. David is director of a national clinical-translational clinic for Ataxia Telangiectasia. He is an active research member of Australian Genomic Health Alliance.
David is the Academic Lead for Paediatrics for the UnitingCare Clinical School. David is actively involved in the teaching of medical students and paediatric trainees and currently holds academic appointments at The University of Queensland, Griffith University, Bond University, and Queensland University of Technology.
David consults in private practice from Queensland Fertility Group, Paed in a Pod, and Gold Coast Child Neurology. He only admits private paediatric patients to the Wesley Hospital but has VMO status at the Mater Hospitals. David has a public appointment in Metabolic Medicine at The Queensland Children’s Hospital. David runs philanthropic Paediatric Outreach Clinics in conjunction with UnitingCare Health to the Helena Goldie Hospital in the Western Provence of the Solomon Islands.
