PT prof receives national APTA award

3 p.m., Sept. 7, 2005--Cole Galloway, assistant professor of physical therapy and psychology, was awarded the Margaret L. Moore Award for Outstanding New Academic Faculty Member by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) at its national conference in June in Boston.

The award is given in honor of Moore, who, as director of physical therapy at the University of North Carolina, mentored and fostered the development of young faculty and improved the quality of education in physical therapy and also served an APTA officer.

Galloway’s research focuses on the neuromotor control of infant and adult behavior, especially how infants adapt and modify spontaneous limb movements, such as flapping and kicking, into such behaviors as reaching and walking.

His clinical interests are the physical rehabilitation of adults following strokes and the treatment of children with motor developmental delays due to central nervous system dysfunction.

Galloway has received grants from the APTA pediatrics section and the National Institutes of Health. At UD, he was instrumental in establishing the Pediatric Rehabilitation Clinic in the Early Learning Center and is a faculty member of the Center for Biomedical Engineering Research.

Galloway received bachelor’s degrees in exercise science and biology from the University of Southern Mississippi and in physical therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University, Medical College of Virginia, and a doctorate in physiological sciences from the University of Arizona. He also is an invited faculty member at Shenandoah University and Northern Arizona University.
