He has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Science.

Dr. Malamud took a course in genetics while studying at the University of Michigan for a Bachelor of Science in 1961, and under the mentoring of a tough professor, Dr. Roger Dawson Milkman, Dr. Malamud developed a passion for genetics. After the University of Michigan, Dr. Malamud attended Western Michigan University earning a Master of Arts in 1962, and subsequently received a PhD from the University of Cincinnati in 1965.

Dr. Malamud completed his postdoctoral fellowship at Temple University in Philadelphia with Dr. Renato Baserga, and remained as Assistant Professor of Pathology for one year before moving to the Massachusetts General as an Assistant Professor of Pathology in the Department of Surgery at Harvard Medical School from 1969 to 1977. He moved to the School of Dental Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania as an Associate Professor in 1977, and become a full professor in 1984 and chairman of the department one year later. In 1983, he was recognized by the University of Pennsylvania with an honorary Master of Arts. He joined the faculty of New York University in 2005.

Dr. Malamud’s research projects have been focused in three major areas: the development of microfluidic point-of-care diagnostic tests for HIV, Malaria, and Zika utilizing blood and saliva samples; the role of DMBT1 (aka gp340, SAG) novel anti-HIV molecule binding to a conserved site on the HIV gp120 glycoprotein. He also identified plasma and salivary biomarkers for medical conditions, including HIV, chronic depression, and pain.

Dr. Malamud has made numerous contributions to medical literature and wrote “Saliva as a Diagnostic Fluid” in 1993, followed by “Oral-Based Diagnostics” in 2007. He was honored with a NYSTAR Distinguished Professor Award from the state of New York from 2005 to 2008, and received a Career Development Award from the National Institutes of Health from 1972 to 1977.
