David Canaday graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1988 with a B.A. in Biology. He then entered Washington University School of Medicine and graduated in 1992. He went on to do an Internal Medicine residency of the University of Minnesota and then finished his training here at Case Western Reserve Univeristy and University Hospitals of Cleveland as an Infectious Disease fellow from 1995-1999. He trained in the lab of Dr. Henry Boom and also had Dr. Clifford Harding as a co-mentor on his K08 grant focusing on the pathogenesis of M. tuberculosis. Dr. Canaday joined the CWRU faculty in 2000 in the Division of Infectious Disease. He has increased his time and effort at the Cleveland VA becoming a member of the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) in 2008 and ultimately the Associate Director of Research in the GRECC in 2010. Dr. Canaday sees patients at the Cleveland VA on the inpatient Medical service and Infectious Disease consultation service. He has active laboratories at both CWRU and the VA.

Dr. Canaday's laboratory works in the area of aspects of human immunity to infectious diseases. He focuses primarily on two areas. The first is understanding the mechanisms of increased pathogenesis during HIV/TB co-infection specifically involving properties of the interactions of T cells with macrophages and dendritic cells that fosters loss of control of TB infection. This work takes place at CWRU and also in collaboration with the TB Research Unit (TBRU) both here and in Kampala, Uganda. The second focus is to determine defects in the human immune system that occur with aging. One current aspect of this project is trying to determine predictors of influenza and shingles vaccination failure in older adults.
