Research in the Paddon-Jones Lab is supported by NIH, NASA and industry grants and focuses on the regulation of muscle mass and function in healthy and clinical populations. Recent studies have included: dietary protein distribution, bed rest in middle-aged and older adults and leucine metabolism.
1. Describe how dietary protein improves body composition.
2. Describe the benefits and applications of protein for body composition, aging and exercise.
3. Review practical counsel on how much protein is needed to optimize muscle mass and function.
