Dr. Steinberg obtained his PhD in 2002 from the University of Guelph. His research thesis was conducted in the laboratory of Professor David Dyck where he studied the regulation of metabolism in muscle by the hormone leptin. From 2002-2006, Dr. Steinberg conducted Postdoctoral Research in the laboratory of Professor Bruce Kemp at St. Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia. During this time he gained insight into protein biochemistry and molecular biology with an emphasis on the metabolic stress sensing protein kinase AMPK. In 2006, Dr. Steinberg became Head of the Metabolism Unit at St. Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research and a Senior Fellow of the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia. In 2009, Dr. Steinberg returned to Canada and joined the Department of Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism Division as an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair. His laboratory is currently funded by grants from CFI, CIHR, CDA and NSERC.
