Research and Professional Interests

Dr. Burd’s area of research interest is exercise physiology. Our research group investigates the effects of nutritional and exercise manipulations on the regulation of muscle mass and changes in body composition with aging, disease, and the athlete. We use stable isotope labeled amino acid tracers, and various other molecular techniques, for the in vivo measurement of whole body and muscle protein turnover in a human model. The knowledge gained from this work is used to define nutritional and exercise strategies to improve muscle health and performance.
