Episode 174: Researcher from Maastrict University, Jorn
Trommelen is on the show to discuss his research on the effect of
glucose/fructose on carbohydrate oxidation during exercise and the
effect of pre-sleep protein on muscle protein balance.
Jorn earned his MSc in Nutrition and Health with top honors at Wageningen University & Research Centre. He is now pursuing a PhD in Muscle Metabolism at Maastricht University, at one of the leading laboratories in that field.
His research focusses on protein ingestion to optimize post-exercise muscle protein synthesis. In addition, he investigates carbohydrate metabolism during and after exercise.
Jorn won several awards for his research including:
