Dr. Lisa Hoffman joined the Western University staff in 2009 as a Lawson Imaging Scientist and was appointed to the role of Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical Biophysics not long after. By the spring of 2010 she had a secondary Assistant Professor position within the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology. These posts followed other impressive research work done through the Ottawa Health Research Institute and the University of Saskatchewan, where she had completed her PhD in 2000.

Dr. Hoffman’s current research interests include therapeutics for the treatment of both the skeletal and cardiac manifestations of Duchenne muscular dystrophy and this has contributed to her receipt of several research grants including the NSERC Discovery Grant and an HSFO Grant-In-Aid.
