After growing up in Ellsworth Maine, Shallee Page received his A.B. in Biochemistry in 1989 and his M.A. in Science Education in 1991. He taught high school science in New Jersey for four years before returning to graduate school. In 2000, he was granted his Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology from Cornell University for research on lipases, proteins that break down fats in the bloodstream.

In between, he has done research stints at Merck, Sharpe and Dohme Pharmaceuticals, The Jackson Laboratory, and the rain forest outside Quito, Ecuador. Currently, he is involved in undergraduate research analyzing genes involved in growth and cancer and in light-sensing in the soft-shell clam Mya arenaria.  In recent years, his UMM undergraduates have presented at the Northeast Undergraduate Research and Development Symposium, the Northeast Bioinformatics Consortium Symposium and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
