Rob Grange

Virginia Tech

Robert W. Grange, PhD, Professor, Director, Metabolism Core, Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA, USA.

Rob received his PhD in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo in 1993, was a post-doctoral fellow in Physiology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, TX from 1993 – 1999, and joined Virginia Tech in 1999. Rob’s research goal is to understand the mechanisms of and develop treatments for neuromuscular diseases.

He tests hypotheses in preclinical (rodent and dog) animal models of neuromuscular disease, e.g., Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Myotubular Myopathy, to determine if the contractile (ex vivo, in vivo), metabolic, and genetic outcomes of treatments such as exercise, drugs, gene therapies or a combination of these are beneficial or detrimental to guide decisions about translation to the clinic.
