Biography

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 responsibility is a course in Human Physiology in which he teaches multiple lecture and laboratory sections each year.  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.  At Creighton, he is a pre-health sciences advisor and serves as a member of the Pre-Health Advisory Committee.  A more complete listing of Dr. Lambert's scholarship, teaching, and service activites can be found on his curriculum vitae.
