Christopher Gardner, PhD

Christopher Gardner has a PhD in Nutrition Science and is a Professor of Medicine at Stanford’s School of Medicine. He has been researching the health effects of a plant based diet and its components for 20 years, primarily with federal (NIH) funding. He recently served on the American Heart Association’s Nutrition committee and is currently on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Culinary Institute of America. On the Stanford campus he has taken the lead in organizing the Stanford Food Summits which have now been held annually since 2010.
