Department Profile


David Shalloway is the Greater Philadelphia Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics. After receiving his Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1975, he became a Research Associate in the Newman Laboratory of Nuclear Studies at Cornell developing renormalization group methods in quantum field theory. In 1977 he switched research directions to focus on the molecular basis of oncogene-mediated carcinogenesis. The transition was supported by Postdoctoral Fellowships from the National Institutes of Health and the American Cancer Society at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute of the Harvard Medical School. From 1982-90, he was on the faculty of the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at The Pennsylvania State University conducting research on src and other oncogenes and on computer applications in molecular biology. From 1988-89 he was Visiting Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of California, San Francisco Medical School, developing a new theoretical approach to the protein folding problem. Dr. Shalloway has received an American Cancer Society Junior Faculty Research Award, a National Institutes of Health Research Career Development Award, and has served on a number of National Institutes of Health grant review committees. He has been at Cornell since 1990.

Research Description

Our research is focused in two areas: interations of Src and Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase a in Cancer, theoretical prediction of protein conformational changes.
