Daniel Malamud, Professor of Basic Sciences & Craniofacial Biology at New York University and Director of the HIV/AIDS program at the New York University College of Dentistry, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Science.
Dr. Malamud has taught with New York University College of Dentistry in the NYU College of Medicine since 2005, after working for many years in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. He took a course in genetics while studying at the University of Michigan for a BS, and under the mentoring of a tough professor, Dr. Roger Dawson Milkman, Dr. Malamud developed a passion for genetics. He is now a recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, and appeared in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education, Who’s Who in the East, and Who’s Who in the World. Dr. Malamud’s research projects have been focused on three major areas: the development of microfluidic point-of-care diagnostic tests for HIV, TB, 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.
After the University of Michigan, Dr. Malamud attended Western Michigan University to earn a MA in 1962, and further matriculated toward a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. He did his early postdoctoral fellowship with Temple University in Philadelphia, and was an assistant professor of pathology there before becoming a biologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital from 1969 to 1977. Dr. Malamud was accepted as an associate professor of biochemistry with the School of Dental Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 1977, and worked to 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 MA.
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 Career Development Awards from the National Institutes of Health from 1972 to 1977. Dr. Malamud is a member of the New York Academy of Sciences, the American Society of Biochemical Molecular Biology, the American Society of Microbiologists, the American Society of Cell Biologists, and the American Society of Biological Chemists.
