This article is about the biological nanophysicist. For the Editor-in chief, see David Callaway (USA Today).

David J. E. Callaway is a biological nanophysicist in the New York University School of Medicine, where he is Professor and Laboratory Director. He was trained as a theoretical physicist by Richard Feynman and Cosmas Zachos, and was previously an associate professor at the Rockefeller University. Recently Callaway's laboratory discovered potential new therapeutics for Alzheimer's disease based upon apomorphine.[1] An earlier paper of his developing models of Alzheimer amyloid formation,[2] has been cited over 177 times in the Scopus database. He has also initiated[3] the study of protein domain dynamics by neutron spin echo spectroscopy, providing a way to observe protein nanomachines in motion.

Previous work includes the invention of the microcanonical ensemble approach to lattice gauge theory with Aneesur Rahman,[4][5] cited over 100 times, work on the convexity of the effective potential of quantum field theory,[6] and work on Langevin dynamics in quantum field theory with John R. Klauder.[7]

A monograph[8] discussing Quantum triviality and whether an elementary scalar Higgs boson can exist was cited over 123 times in the HEP database. Another paper of his providing constraints on the Higgs boson[9] has been cited over 103 times in that database as well. He has also published well-cited papers on topics including black holes, superconductors and protein chemistry.

Athletic accomplishments[edit]

Dr Callaway is an avid expedition mountaineer and polar explorer.[10] He was a competitor on the first Eco-Challenge.[11]
