Walter Herzog is Professor in Kinesiology, Medicine, Engineering and Veterinary Medicine and Director of the Human Performance Laboratory at the University of Calgary.

Walter's research is focused on the neuro-biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system. Expertise is in the area of growth, healing, and adaptation of soft (ligament, tendon, muscle, and articular cartilage) and hard (bone) tissues.

Within this area, work is carried out experimentally and theoretically at molecular/cellular, in vitro, in situ and in vivo levels.

It also includes cell manipulation and mechanical testing, and finite element modeling, continuum mechanics, simulations and theories of growth and adaptation.
