Assistant Professor

Daniel Moore

Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education


Research Interests
Protein metabolism, Exercise and disuse, Growth and development, Sports nutrition, Skeletal muscle remodeling

Professor Moore specializes in muscle protein metabolism, musculoskeletal health with exercise and disuse, sports nutrition, training adaptations and muscle stem cell regulation. Prof. Moore has received wide recognition for his work, including NSERC and CIHR doctoral fellowships, and has been published in many journals including The British Journal of Nutrition, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and The Journal of Physiology. In 2012, The American Society for Nutrition honoured Prof. Moore with one of its Young Investigator Awards, recognizing his outstanding contribution to research in macronutrient metabolism.
