James S. Malter, MD Professor and Chair at UT Southwestern Medical Center
UTSW Physician Practicing at Children's Health
James Malter, M.D., is a pathologist at Children’s Health℠.
Dr. Malter earned his medical degree from 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.
“It’s the best patient care we can deliver when we bring together different doctors with different skill sets and expertise to provide the fastest, most up-to-date and most accurate diagnosis. That’s what everybody wants, and it’s a tremendous advantage to patients,” says Dr. Malter.
Dr. Malter has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health and other agencies since 1988. His 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.
Dr. Malter 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.
