Dr. Todd Miller earned his B.S. in Exercise and Sport Science from Penn State University, and his Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from Texas A&M. He completed his postdoctoral work in Microbiology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He is currently an Associate Professor of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences in the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University (GW) in Washington DC, where he is responsible for the creation and oversight of the M.S. degree program in Strength & Conditioning.
With more than 20 years of teaching experience at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, Dr. Miller is an expert at integrating and explaining the complex interactions of nutrition, metabolism and exercise in a way that is easily understandable for the lay person. He currently serves as the Chair for the Council for the Accreditation of Strength and Conditioning Education and has won the GW Excellence in Teaching award five times.
Dr. Miller’s professional and research interests have varied widely and included studies of exercise adherence in commercial health clubs; caloric expenditure during interactive video gaming in school children; obesity treatment in retired US National Football League players, and most recently, the role of weight training in preventing and treating overweight/obesity in women. He is the former Director of the Weight Management and Human Performance Lab at GW’s Virginia Science and Technology Campus, where he worked with people from all walks of life to help them learn sustainable eating and exercise behaviors, to optimise metabolic health and body composition.
We had the privilege to ask Dr. Miller a couple of key questions:
1. What attracted you to NeoLife’s Scientific Advisory Board?
The credibility of the scientists that currently sit on the SAB is really what made NeoLife stand out for me. The wealth of experience that those folks bring to NeoLife is critical to creating, safe, efficacious products that are evidence based and not driven by fad or marketing trends. I really like that product development is research/science driven. So many nutritional companies are not, and focus more on profit than creating high quality products.
2. What are you excited about in the future with NeoLife?
I’m very excited to see how NeoLife grows in the future. I think the North American market is relatively untapped, and once people realise the quality that goes into NeoLife products, the demand for them is going to rapidly increase. I’m also excited to see what new products we’re going to be developing in the future. The world of nutrition changes quickly, and NeoLife appears to stay right ahead of those changes, ensuring that all of our products are cutting edge, and the best in the world.
