Patterson, Brewer awarded grant

Houston faculty members Mindy Patterson (nutrition & food sciences) and Wayne Brewer (physical therapy) have been awarded a $180,862 grant from Ingredion Incorporated for their project examining the impact of consuming a daily protein supplement (pea isolate, whey isolate, or placebo) on young males’ muscle mass and strength following an eight-week resistance training program. They also will measure essential amino acid appearance as well as glucose and insulin concentrations before and after the residency training program. The researchers will use a randomized-double blind parallel study design. (6-19-19)
