Daniel loves exploring the unknown, the thrill, and the sense of accomplishment that comes with forming the strange familiar. This passion has inspired him to formulate significant transitions, both conceptually and with methodology, at every stage of his career. Daniel purposefully chooses research projects that improve human health and stand to make fundamental discoveries of human biology and human life. His research work integrates the development of new computational methods and their application to experimental and theoretical approaches for expanding the use of biological and medical data. His research aims to understand the genetic and molecular basis of human diseases, including HIV, and to identify intrinsic mechanisms and novel drug therapies that can restore normal functions.
His recent work investigated the relationship between substance misuse and HIV/AIDS in Germany. Daniel worked on the production of two computer-simulated tools (in silicon tests) to support future risk assessments for new psychoactive substances.
Another ongoing project is about turning stem cell biology into stem cell medicine. This study covers molecular and cellular approaches to stem cell research (stem cell biotechnology, gene delivery systems, and molecular virology), with regenerative medicine and tissue engineering applications.
In recent years, his curiosity has evolved and expanded to include current studies of science, technology, and humanity. The purpose of this large-scale international multidisciplinary program is to examine the implications of our actions today and to find out what can be done now to secure the long-term future of humanity. My aim in this area is to integrate and disseminate science, new technologies and achieve a global consensus of experts in the search and implementation of a new model of human development, a model that can transform human consciousness and give new meaning to life, especially immortality.
