Description

Dr. Gallagher joined the faculty of the University of Washington in 2004 as Sheldon D. Murphy Associate Professor of Toxicology. Dr. Gallagher was formerly an Associate Professor at the University of Florida were he also served as Director of the Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory in the College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Gallagher serves as the Director of the UW Superfund Research Program, a multi-investigator and multi-institutional center funded by NIEHS that addresses the effects of neurotoxic chemicals on ecological and human health. In addition to his Superfund activities, he is also an active member of the UW EDGE Center and the UW training grant in Environmental Pathology and Toxicology. Dr. Gallagher is a member of the Society of Toxicology as well as the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. Dr. Gallagher maintains an active research and teaching program focused on chemical injury in aquatic organisms, and using approaches that integrates molecular, biochemical physiological and behavioral endpoints., Accordingly, students and post-docs in Dr. Gallagher's laboratory potentially have the opportunity to work in the areas of comparative toxicology of aquatic organisms, and also using fish models to address the environmental impacts of chemical exposures on human health.approaches to the functional genomics of microbial drug resistance, development of biological databases, next generation sequencing for genome assembly and molecular epidemiology, automated literature curation approaches, controlled vocabularies for biological knowledge integration, big data in the biomedical sciences, and functional genomics approaches in environmental toxicology. His research often involves collaboration with Public Health agencies and license agreements with industrial partners.
