About Ralph A Bradshaw

Ralph A. Bradshaw is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Physiology and biophysics at the University of California, Irvine. Prior to that he was on the faculty of the Department of Biological Chemistry, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO and was Professor and Chair of the Department of Biological Chemistry at the University of California, Irvine. From 2006 to 2015, he was a member of the Mass Spectrometry Facility and Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of California, San Francisco. He holds degrees from Colby College and Duke University and was a post-doctoral fellow at Indiana University and the University of Washington. He has served as president for FASEB, was the founding president of the Protein Society and was the treasurer of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. His research has focused on protein chemistry and proteomics, with emphasis on the structure and function of growth factors and their receptors, particularly nerve growth factor and fibroblast growth factor, and the involvement of receptor tyrosine kinases in cell signalling. He has also studied in the role of proteolytic processing and N-terminal modification in protein stability and turnover. Philip D. Stahl is Mallinckrodt Jr. Professor Emeritus at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO. He was educated at West Virginia University with post-doctoral work at Vanderbilt University. He served as Head of the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology and Director of the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences at Washington University. He has been the recipient of many awards including a MERIT award from the NIH and the WICB Senior Recognition award given by the American Society for Cell Biology in recognition of his work supporting the advancement of women in science. Among StahlLab contributions are the discovery of the lysosomal enzyme clearance pathway now implemented in the treatment of lysosomal storage disease, discovery of the innate immune receptor, the mannose receptor, discovery of the exosome secretion pathway, and the role of Rab5 and Arf6 in endocytosis. Currently his research focuses on endocytosis, signal transduction, and exosome biogenesis and secretion.
