Professional Bio

After receiving his B.S. in Psychology from the University of Illinois, Dr. Welle obtained a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Northern Illinois University. Dr. Welle's research deals with regulation of muscle protein metabolism and gene expression, and how these are affected by aging and by endogenous growth factors. He also collaborates with faculty in the neuromuscular research group (neurology department) to study the effects of muscular dystrophies on gene expression. Finally, Dr. Welle plays a critical role in running many of the core facilities at the University of Rochester, serving as Director of the Functional Genomics Center and the CRC Core laboratory.
