Todd Rideout, PhD, began his faculty appointment with the University at Buffalo in January of 2011. During his PhD program, Rideout examined the molecular basis for the cholesterol-lowering effects of dietary fiber in the pig model. Rideout’s postdoctoral training at the Richardson Centre for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals, University of Manitoba, examined metabolic factors that influence the substantial inter-individual cholesterol-lowering effects of phytosterols in human subjects.
