Dr. Andrey Shaw is a professor of Pathology and Immunology at Washington University in St. Louis. He is the Head of the Division of Immunobiology and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Dr. Shaw is the past editor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, a journal published by the American Society for Microbiology and has served on the Immunology Program Steering Committee and the Curriculum Committee at Washington University Medical School. He is the recipient of NIH MERIT Award and numerous Distinguished Service Teaching Awards from the Medical School classes of Washington University.
Dr. Shaw attended medical school at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. After completing his residency in pathology at Yale-New Haven Hospital, he went on to complete a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Pathology and the Department of Cell Biology at Yale.
Dr. Shaw’s current work focuses on podocytes and the genetic defects that can compromise cell function in human patients. Dr. Shaw has already found that mutations which produce CD2AP protein deficiency can cause kidney disease, and he pursues other genes that may be involved.
