Biography

David Nieman is a professor of health and exercise science at Appalachian State University, and director of the Human Performance Labs at the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, NC.

His current research is focused on nutritional countermeasures to exercise-induced immune dysfunction.  Read More
