Biography


Beginning in January, 2016, Dr. David Dallas will be an Assistant Professor in the School of of Biological and Population Health Sciences within the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. The overall aim of Dr. Dallas’s research is to improve the health of premature infants, a population that suffers greatly reduced health outcomes (including early mortality, developmental disorders, and high risk of infection) in comparison with term-delivered, breast milk-fed infants. The reduced digestive capacity of premature infants results in an inability break down milk proteins in the same way as term infants. This diminished digestive function may result in the premature infant's inability to take advantage of bioactive peptides and glycopeptides encrypted in human milk proteins. In essence, premature infants are not receiving the full and multi-faceted health benefits of milk. Dr. Dallas attended graduate school at UC Davis in the Nutritional Biology Graduate Group, graduating with his Ph.D. in 2012. From 2012 to 2015, he was a post-doctoral fellow at UC Davis. Dr. Dallas’s doctoral research focused on the characterization of the N-linked glycans of human milk proteins. His graduate research was funded by the Designated Emphasis in Biotechnology with the NIH Training Program in Bio-molecular Technology and the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Dr. Dallas's post-doctoral research focused on characterization of milk protein digestion in infants. Methods developed allowed for the identification of thousands of naturally occurring peptides released from milk proteins by native milk enzymes. His work showed that milk enzymes continue to break down milk proteins within the infant's stomach to release functional peptide fragments. Dr. Dallas grew up on a wheat farm in Pendleton, Oregon. He graduated from Rice University in Houston, Texas.
