Troy A. Hornberger

Troy A. Hornberger, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of physiology and metabolic and molecular basis of medicine in the Department of Comparative Biosciences at University of Wisconsin. Tory got Ph.D. in Kinesiology with a specialization in Skeletal Muscle Molecular Biology at University of Illinois Chicago in 2004. After that, he had been a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Bioengineering at University of California San Diego during 2004-2007, and then he went to University of Wisconsin to be an assistant professor.

His primary research interest encompasses the definition of the mechano-molecular events that regulate skeletal muscle growth and atrophy. Although the link between mechanical signals and the control of muscle mass have been recognized for decades, the mechanisms involved in converting mechanical information into the molecular events that control this process remain ill defined. In this field, he has been exploring that how skeletal muscles sense mechanical information and convert this stimulus into the molecular events that regulate changes in mass (mechanotransduction), and primarily focusing on a protein kinase called the mammalian target of rapamycin (MTOR). Tory will present the work that he’s done in this field, and also he was invited to attend upcoming World Congress on the Basic Science of Skeletal Muscle Hypertrophy and Atrophy on May 30, 2018, and will give a speech about “ Using Phosphoproteomics to Understand How Mechanical Signals Regulate Skeletal Muscle Mass”.
