James Malter, M.D., joined UT Southwestern Medical Center as Professor and Chair of the Department of Pathology in August 2011. He holds The Senator Betty and Dr. Andy Andujar Distinguished Chair in Pathology.
After receiving his undergraduate degree at Dartmouth College, Dr. Malter pursued his medical degree at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He then completed postdoctoral and residency training in pathology and laboratory medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Malter first became interested in medicine during his senior year at Dartmouth when he was involved on a thesis project at the medical school with a mentor from the Department of Biochemistry. The mentor, a physician/scientist (M.D./Ph.D.), convinced the young Malter that a career in medicine would give him the opportunity to do the science he loved – and more.
In medical school, he would learn the underpinnings of the diseases and conditions he would see in patients, and how he could approach those problems from the development of therapeutics, the investigation of disease mechanisms, or an understanding of the biology and pathology of what he was evaluating.
In 1991, he joined the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. He was Medical Director of the Blood Bank and Transfusion Service and the Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory for the University of Wisconsin Hospital, and served two years as Acting Chair of the Department of Pathology.
Dr. Malter was named an Investigator at the Waisman Center for Developmental Disabilities, UW Graduate School, in 2002, becoming the Cell and Molecular Neuroscience Core Director in 2003 and Associate Director for Biological Sciences in 2004.
Continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health and other agencies since 1988, Dr. Malter’s research is currently supported by multiple individual and program project grants for his scientific work in post-transcriptional gene regulation and signaling in the immune and nervous systems.
He is a member of both the American Society for Investigative Pathology and the American Society for Clinical Investigation, past Chair of several NIH review panels, and current member of the editorial boards of Journal of Experimental Medicine and Science Signaling.
