We are truly fortunate to have someone like Dr. Campbell, with such
national stature and respect, speak for our Society. We urge everyone
to bring friends and relatives to hear his important message based on
years of research.
Dr. Campbell has been at the forefront of nutrition research for 40
years. His legacy, "The China Study", is the most comprehensive study
of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the Jacob
Gould Shurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at
Cornell University and Project Director of the China-Oxford-Cornell
Diet and Health Project. The study was the culmination of a 20-year
partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University and the Chinese
Academy of Preventive Medicine.
Dr. Campbell received his master's degree and Ph.D. from Cornell, and
served as a Research Associate at MIT. He spent 10 years on the
faculty of Virginia Tech's Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition
before returning to the Division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell
in 1975 where he presently holds his Endowed Chair (now Emeritus).
His principal scientific interests, which began with his graduate
training in the late 1950's, has been on the effects of nutritional
status on long term health, particularly on the cause of cancer. He
has conducted original research both in laboratory experiments and in
large-scale human studies; has received more than 70 grant-years of
peer-reviewed research funding, mostly from the National Institute of
Health and has served on several grant review panels of multiple
funding agencies lectured extensively, and has authored more than 300
research papers. He is the recipient of several awards, both in
research and citizenship, and has conducted original research
investigation both in experimental animal and human studies, and has
actively participated in the development of national and
international nutrition policy. For more information on Dr. Campbell
