Description

Blending Proteins to Build Muscle: What does the research tell us? sponsored by Dupont

Blends of dairy and soy protein are commonly used in sports nutrition products. These proteins vary in amino acid composition and digestibility rates; thus, combinations of soy and dairy proteins may have advantages for muscle recovery. The webinar highlights recent research evaluating the effects of consuming a soy-dairy protein blend versus single source proteins on muscle protein synthesis.

Presenter: Blake Rasmussen, Ph.D. is the current Chair of the Department of Nutrition and Metabolism at the University of Texas – Medical Branch (UTMB) in the School of Health Professions. Dr. Rasmussen holds the Lloyd and Sue Ann Hill Endowed Professorship in Healthy Aging and is currently the Director of the Department's Muscle Biology & Metabolism Laboratory and the Leader of the NIH funded Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center Pilot and Exploratory Studies Core at UTMB.  Dr. Rasmussen earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in Exercise Science from Utah State University and a Ph.D. in Zoology/Cell Biology from Brigham Young University.  His research is focused on how nutrition and exercise influence muscle biology and in developing clinical interventions to prevent muscle loss during aging and other muscle wasting conditions.
