Dr. Pandorf’s research is in skeletal muscle adaptation to altered activity patterns and the transcriptional regulation of key genes underlying this process. A focus is the role of long non-coding RNAs in regulating muscle contractile genes during disuse and exercise. These mechanisms are also being investigated in cardiac muscle and in response to ventricular remodeling.
