James C. (Cole) Galloway

Associate Chair, Department of Physical Therapy


Brendan and ColeJames C. (Cole) Galloway, is a Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Physical Therapy. Galloway’s research focuses on motor behaviors of infants. He is especially interested in how neural, biomechanical, behavioral and environmental influences interaction as infants learn to coordinate their early head, arm and leg behaviors for later skills such as reaching, sitting and walking.

Galloway is the director of GoBabyGo Pediatric Mobility Lab & Design Studio, located in the STAR Health Sciences Complex.  GoBabyGo  is committed to getting kids with developmental disabilities moving and able to actively engage with their environment.  With the GoBabyGo ride-on car project, the PlayskinLift exoskeleton garment, and the GoBabyGo Cafe, Galloway and his research team are pushing the boundaries of traditional medical devices.  The GoBabyGo team design and engineer  medical devices that provide both fun and function.
