Graduating from the Penn State Biomechanics Lab in 1976, Dr. Gregor’s research interests in skeletal muscle physiology and mechanics led him to a faculty position at UCLA in the Department of Kinesiology. On faculty for 20 years at UCLA Dr. Gregor focused on the use of skeletal muscle as a resource to the nervous system in movement control. Taking a position at the Georgia Tech in 1993 his lab focused on sensorimotor integration, neural control and movement biomechanics using both animal and human models. Dr. Gregor retired as Professor Emeritus from Georgia Tech in 2008 and currently holds a faculty position in the Department of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy at USC.

Regarding the ASB, Dr. Gregor served as a member of the Executive Board (1993-4, 1995-8), as Program Chair for the Annual Meeting at Ohio State (1994), as Meeting Chair for the Annual Meeting at Georgia Tech (1996) and as President (1996-7). He has recently been voted to the level of Fellow Emeritus effective 2012. In addition, Dr. Gregor was the Founding Chair of the School of Applied Physiology at Georgia Tech, is a Fellow Emeritus in ACSM, Founding Editor of the Journal of Applied Biomechanics and served as Co-Chairman of the Organizing Committee, XIIth International Congress of Biomechanics, UCLA (1989).
