Dr. Christopher Gardner

Christopher D. Gardner, PhD, is Director of Nutrition Studies at the Stanford Prevention Research Center and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Stanford University. He received his PhD in Nutritional Sciences in 1993 from the University of California, Berkeley. His postgraduate training included a postdoctoral fellowship in cardiovascular disease epidemiology at Stanford. Dr. Gardner is actively involved in research and teaching. His research focus is on dietary intervention trials designed to test the effects of food components or food patterns on chronic disease risk factors, including body weight, blood lipids, and inflammatory markers. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals, including a recent publication in JAMA of a study contrasting the weight loss effects of four diets ranging from very low to very high carbohydrate among more than 300 women who were assigned to the diets for one year.

When Christopher Gardner was a young, recent graduate of Colgate University, where he majored in philosophy, he spent several years working odd jobs, waiting to "find himself," he says. He worked as a waiter, assistant manager, and even a carpenter before he settled on the idea of opening a vegetarian restaurant. In order to improve his knowledge of food, he took a few nutrition classes, which fascinated him so much that he ended up earning a PhD in nutrition from the University of California, Berkeley. Now a researcher at the Stanford School of Medicine, Gardner investigates how different diets and foods affect health, including running a large-scale study that is looking at whether genotype, insulin-resistance status, or the microbiome predispose an individual to better outcomes on a low-fat or low-carb diet. "We came to a conclusion that we've been asking the wrong question about this really wicked problem of weight and obesity," he says. Instead of trying to define the one "best" diet for everyone, it may be better to tailor a person's diet to suit their genome, metabolome, and/or microbiome predispositions. Gardner also developed Stanford's annual Food Summit, which brings together researchers from all parts of the university campus to discuss solutions to food and nutrition problems.

With Gardner, he is examining psychosocial determinants of overeating and gene-environment interactions in weight loss interventions. In "Digesting Dietary Data," Stanton and Gardner explore what it takes to design a good nutritional study.
