Barbara A. Horwitz

Dr. Barbara Horwitz, a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Neurobiology, Physiology, & Behavior in the College of Biological Sciences and the Department of Physiology & Membrane Biology in the School of Medicine at the University of California, Davis, earned her PhD in Physiology from Emory University, did her postdoctoral work at UCLA and UC Davis, and joined the UC Davis faculty as an Assistant Professor.  Her research program has centered on neural and hormonal regulation of energy balance including mechanisms underlying adrenergic regulation of energy expenditure; the role of mitochondrial uncoupling proteins in energy balance, oxidative stress, and neuroprotection; and mechanisms in mammalian hibernators providing neuroprotection and survival in extreme environments.  She has published ~200 research papers in these and related fields, many in collaboration with John Horowitz.  Committed to providing students with research experience, she has mentored more than 350 undergraduates and 28 graduate students who have worked in her lab, and she is the program director of three NIH-supported training programs for underrepresented undergraduate and graduate students.  She has served as Department Chair, as Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, and as Interim Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor at UC Davis as well as President of the American Physiological Society and President of the Society for Biology and Experimental Medicine.  Dr. Horwitz has been recognized by numerous campus and national awards for her scholarship, her teaching, and her mentoring, and she is an elected Fellow of the AAAS and of the American Physiological Society.
