My current expert position within the Center for Translational Research in Aging & Longevity (CTRAL) is based on 25-years of expertise on nutrition, metabolism, and in vivo (patho)physiological studies involving the use of stable isotope approaches and methodologies in animals. I was heavily involved in the design and construction of the new Human Clinical Research Facility at Texas A&M University in 2016 (current home of CTRAL) which further increased my laboratory design, management, and leadership skills. As Director of Animal Research within CTRAL, I design the animal use and the stable isotope use protocols, and perform complex surgical procedures. I develop and implement new quantitative metabolic and stable isotope techniques and procedures in large and small animals. As co-director of the CTRAL analytical lab, I review, design, and collect data pertaining to human and animal stable isotope studies collaborating with national and international researchers. I am also responsible for the administrative responsibilities related to regulatory affairs, (budget) management of the labs and clinic. I oversee the coordination of analyses, all pharmacy related activities, quality control, lab personnel, general equipment maintenance, and laboratory safety procedures. I mentor CTRAL research assistants, graduate students and postdocs, and assist faculty and (inter)national collaborating faculty with grant writing and scientific publications. Finally, I'm a Managing editor of the journals Clinical Nutrition (IF:6.4) and Clinical Nutrition ESPEN.
