Dr. Horn received his Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology in 2003 from the University of Cincinnati. He then went on to study the role of ribosomal stress in activating the tumor suppressor p53 pathway. In 2008 he moved his research into nuclear envelope proteins and has analyzed several mouse models of these proteins (KASH5 and Nesprin 4). Using these models, he discovered roles for nuclear envelope proteins in infertility and hearing loss. Dr. Horn has been an Assistant Professor at HBKU since 2014, where his lab focuses on how cellular mechanics impacts cancer invasion, hearing loss, and infertility.
