Gordon Zello PhD

MEMBER SINCE: Jun 12, 2007

PROFILE: I am a Professor of Nutrition in the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition at the University of Saskatchewan (http://www.usask.ca), Canada. I moved to Saskatoon after completing graduate studies at the University of Toronto and The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto. In the Nutrition and Dietetics program, I teach Macronutrient and Energy Metabolism and Nutritional Assessment.

I have an active graduate (>30 students and Post-Doctoral Fellows completed or in progress) and research program in both basic and applied nutrition. My fields of specialization are intermediary metabolism and nutritional assessment. Research interests include the measurement of body composition, energy expenditure, metabolism, athletic performance, and nutrient requirements in healthy (e.g. human lifespan, athletes) and clinical populations (e.g. metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity, parenteral nutrition, PCOS, IBD, D-lactic acidosis). Recent work with children and their caregivers has included examining knowledge, attitudes and beliefs towards dairy and lentil consumption in Saskatoon.

I have a particular interest in investigating the health benefits of pulses and promoting pulses as part of the Canadian diet and abroad such as in Ethiopia, Peru and Bangladesh where the double burden of malnutrition is a growing concern.

I have published over 100 scientific articles and review papers, and have given over 100 conference presentations. I also am involved in a number of outreach and engagement activities and volunteer to various professional organizations.
