Prof. Campbell’s research program at Purdue University is dedicated to evaluating and understanding how nutrition and exercise can be used as effective tools to positively affect the metabolism, health and functional well-being of people as they progress through the life course.  His current research primarily focuses on:

  1. Assessing the effects healthy eating patterns and protein-rich foods on cardiometabolic disease risk factors and indices of well-being, including microbiota and sleep quality
  2. Dietary protein source, quantity, and within-day patterning on body composition (including muscle and bone) responses to anabolic and catabolic stimuli (exercise training and dietary energy restriction, respectively);
  3. Dietary protein needs of older adults

NUTR 48800 Topics in Nutrition, Fitness, and Health: This course is designed to provide juniors and seniors in the nutrition, fitness, and health curriculum with a review of the current literature as it relates to their major. Specific information from previous courses in separate disciplines will be integrated to study the interrelationships between nutrition and exercise and their impact on physical performance and health. Concepts combining nutritional sciences and exercise physiology will be presented, and controversies in the current literature will be discussed.
