Dr. Stanley Maloy
After earning a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from the University of California at Irvine, Stanley did postdoctoral work in Genetics at the University of Utah, then joined the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign faculty in 1984 where he was promoted through the ranks to Professor and Director of the Biotechnology Center. In August, 2002 he moved to San Diego State University as founding Director of the Center for Microbial Sciences and Professor of Biology.

Stanley is Past-President of the American Society for Microbiology, the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world. He has had numerous roles at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, teaching the summer course in Advanced Bacterial Genetics from 1990-1995, the advanced graduate course in Microbial Pathogenesis at the Watson Graduate School from 2002-2006, and was co-founder of the international symposium on Microbial Pathogenesis and Host Response. He has taught numerous international courses and organized many international scientific meetings. He is the author of several books, and has won multiple awards for teaching. He has consulted for large companies and small, biotech start-up companies, served on the Scientific Advisory Board of several companies, and as Chief Scientific Officer of Vaxiion Therapeutics. He served as chair of the NIH MBC1 Study Section and as an advisor for many national and international scientific agencies. for Microbial Sciences and Professor of Biology.

Research in his lab focuses on bacterial physiology, genetics, genomics, and the evolution of microbial pathogens.
