Welcome and Introduction

Lem Taylor PhD FISSN and Past-President of the ISSN


Abbie Smith-Ryan PhD FISSN - Unversity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill North Carolina - Topic:  Nutrition and Supplementation for Women Across the Lifespan: Leveraging Science to Provide Application 

Description: Growing evidence and innovation support the unique physiological and nutrient timing needs for women. Despite the need for more nutrition and exercise specific research in women, there is initial data and known physiological differences related to brain, respiration, bone, and muscle to support evidence-based education and dietary supplements for women.  Additional considerations will be provided for macronutrient intake across the menstrual cycle, along with considerations for oral contraceptive use, transition to menopause, and pregnancy.

Abbie Smith-Ryan’s BIO.


Darryn Willoughby PhD FISSN, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor at Belton Texas, Past-President of ISSN - Topic: Is There a "Muscle Full Effect" or are we just "Full of It?"

Description: Dr. Willoughby will discuss anabolic resistance and the concept of muscle having a threshold for the intracellular amino acid content. When it comes to protein intake and muscle protein synthesis, is more better or is there a discretionary protein intake for appropriate amino acid saturation in muscle?
