Christopher Gardner, Ph.D. (Principal investigator)
Christopher Gardner Christopher Gardner, Ph.D. Stanford Prevention Research Center, Stanford University School of Medicine Christopher Gardner is a Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, where he is renowned for his work in nutrition and obesity, particularly through the use of human randomized trials. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, in nutrition science in 1993. Dr. Gardner's "A TO Z" study, published in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2007, is widely considered one of the landmark trials in the field and was recently listed by JAMA as the most-read article in the field. At Stanford, Dr. Gardner leads initiatives to bring together scholars from all seven of Stanford's schools to address the complex web of factors influencing production, distribution, and consumption of food. He has led four annual Stanford Food Summits (2010-2013) and is working with a team of scholars to craft an undergraduate program in Food Systems. He also directs Stanford's Nutritional Studies Program, and serves as a Director of a National Institutes of Health postdoctoral training program. Dr. Gardner recently served two terms on the American Heart Association's Nutrition Committee, and currently serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Culinary Institute of America.
