Biography


Dr. Elisabeth Huff-Lonergan is a Professor in the Animal Science Department at Iowa State University. She is an internationally known, highly respected researcher in applied muscle biology and early post-mortem muscle/meat biochemistry. Her research focus is on biochemical mechanisms in muscle that influence efficient muscle growth and also fresh meat quality. Her research program uses cutting-edge protein chemistry techniques and has significant practical applications for the livestock industry. The Lonergan lab group (which includes her trainees and Steven Lonergan’s trainees) is recognized as one of the foremost laboratories in calpain biology in skeletal muscle of livestock. She has more than 100 peer-reviewed papers that have been published or are in press, five peer-reviewed book chapters, over 100 abstracts, and one patent. Elisabeth is a fellow in IFT (Institute of Food Technologists) and a Fellow of the American Meat Science Association (Signal Service Award Recipient). She is editor-in-chief of the official journal of the American Meat Science Association, "Meat and Muscle Biology".
