Bert Tanner, Ph.D.


Dr. Tanner is an expert in computational modeling and complex analysis of biophysical processes. He is an assistant professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University. He will perform stochastic length perturbation analysis on individual fibers, a technique that will allow us to infer molecular kinematics from cellular forces.




Dave Warshaw, Ph.D.


Dr. David Warshaw is a world-recognized expert in the field of myosin contractile kinetics and has pioneered much of the work in cardiac MyBP-C. He will provide primary scientific oversight and mentorship. Dr. Warshaw is the Chair of the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Vermont and leads the Warshaw Molecular Motors Group.



Larry David, Ph.D.



Dr. David is director of the Proteomics Shared Resource and Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Oregon Health and Science University. He is an expert in proteomic analysis and has focused his research efforts on characterizing proteins using mass spectrometry since 1997.




Hans Dreyer, Ph.D



Dr. Dreyer has conducted studies of human muscle biology for over 18 years and performing percutaneous needle muscle biopsies at the University of Oregon since 2010. He has held a license to practice physical therapy and has extensive experience working with older adults in the context of physical rehabilitation.
