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.
