Dr. Rodgers’ research program incorporates both biomedical and comparative models to better understand how skeletal and cardiac muscle develops and, more importantly, is repaired. He incorporates endocrine, stem cell and gene therapy approaches and has won WSU’s Graduate Student Mentor of the Year award as well as his college’s prestigious Wade Teaching award. His research is supported by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the United States Department of Agriculture.

The Washington Center for Muscle Biology (WCMB) is currently managed by Washington State University and has been approved by its Faculty Senate. Center status is currently being developed at the University of Washington as well. Once this is complete, a Co-Director will be appointed and will facilitate activities at UW.
