Faculty of Health Sciences
Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research
Dr Nolan Hoffman completed his BSc in Biology at Butler University in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana in the USA. Nolan earned his PhD in Cellular and Integrative Physiology in 2012 from Indiana University School of Medicine, where he also received postgraduate training in the business of life sciences. He relocated to Australia in 2012 to undertake his postdoctoral research at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the University of Sydney Charles Perkins Centre. He joined Australian Catholic University in 2016 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Exercise and Nutrition Research Program at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research where he currently leads the Integrative Physiology Group.
Nolan's research is focused on the regulation of whole body and skeletal muscle metabolism by diet and exercise with a focus on cellular signalling networks and energy sensing mechanisms. His translational research involves a range of approaches including molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, proteomics, systems biology and physiology.

Nat Sch Exercise Science
I am an exercise physiologist whose research, clinical, and teaching career has focused on the integration of exercise, medicine and behaviour change as a means to improve quality of life, particularly among older adults and in clinical populations. I am interested in functional, cardiometabolic, and vascular outcomes in a variety of populations.

Nat Sch Physiotherapy
I have worked in the field of biomedical research since commencing post-graduate studies in 1997. Since then I have been involved in a number of different internationally recognised research projects ranging from obesity to cancer. In 2008 helped I established the Division of Molecular and Gene Therapies within the Griffith Institute for Health and Medical Research. I was subsequently appointed the Head of the Clinical Research Unit. Some of the projects I am currently involved in include, genetics of type 2 diabetes, research into solid tumours (lung cancer, prostate, breast and colorectal cancer) and Chinese traditional medicines. In early 2009, I help establish a collaborative link with the Guangdong Pharmaceutical University in Guangdong Province China and more recently I have been responsible for establishing links with an industry partners.
Over the course of my career I have had the opportunity to teach medical students at the University of Queensland. Since 2008 I was the course convenor (lecturer-in-charge) for anatomy and physiology at Griffith University. In this role I received many student nominations for Teaching Excellence Awards. In 2010, I also received a Commendation for outstanding performance in enhancing the quality of student learning.
