G. Patrick Lambert, PhD

Professor

G. Patrick Lambert, Ph.D., is Professor of Exercise Science and Pre-Health Professions at Creighton University.  He received his Ph.D. in exercise physiology from the University of Iowa in 2001.  His research focuses on gastrointestinal function with respect to exercise and various other stressors.  His primary teaching responsibilities are in Human Physiology and Nutrition for Health and Sports Performance.  He is a long-standing member of the American Physiological Society and the American College of Sports Medicine.  He is also Past-President of the Nebraska Physiological Society.  A more complete listing of Dr. Lambert's scholarship, teaching, and service activities can be found on his curriculum vitae.
