For more than 40 years, T. Colin Campbell has been at the forefront of nutrition research. His legacy, the China Project, is the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. On February 20, the renowned biochemist and nutrition expert led the W. David Baird Distinguished Lecture Series with a discussion of his new book, Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition.

Campbell also explored the concepts in the documentary Forks over Knives, which sheds light on his research and examines the lives of those who have been positively impacted by his recommended whole-food, plant-based diet. The talk concluded with discussion of The China Study, one of America's best-selling books about nutrition coauthored with his son Thomas Campbell, and a question-and-answer session.

T. Colin Campbell is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. He has authored more than 300 research papers. In addition, he is coauthor with Thomas Campbell of the best-selling book, The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-term Health and wrote the New York Times best-seller Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition with Howard Jacobson.
