Human Products Division: St. Clair Shores, Michigan, June 28, 2007: The ability to be involved in and sponsor the clinical research needed to advance the science of mineral nutrition has long been one of Albion Advanced Nutrition's strengths, and one of its missions. In line with this, Albion Advanced Nutrition has struck an agreement with Robert DiSilvestro, Ph.D. (biochemistry), Professor of Nutrition, Department of Human Nutrition, at Ohio State University. Dr. DiSilvestro is one of the leading research scientists in the field of mineral research, specializing in nutritional biochemistry and clinical nutrition of minerals and antioxidant nutrients, in particular regard to inflammatory aspects of disease and exercise recovery.
