FTP #11: Daniel Moore, PhD – Protein for cyclists: Beyond Muscle hypertrophy


Guest Bio

Daniel Moore is an assistant professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education and a member of the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology and American Society for Nutrition. His research explores the interplay between exercise and nutrition and how the two can be used to optimize the quantity and quality of muscle across a range of different populations including children, athletes, and older adults. He has authored over 75 peer-reviewed papers and was the recipient of a Canada Foundation for Innovation to build a high-performance muscle metabolism research lab at UofT. His excellence in research was recognized by the American Society for Nutrition as the 2012 recipient of the Peter J. Reeds Young Investigator Award.
