Collaborative Research to Optimize Warfighter Nutrition (CROWN)III
The Collaborative Research to Optimize Warfighter Nutrition (CROWN) III project is a series of 5 projects that use nutrition, metabolism and human physiology to address objectives relevant to the nutritional health of military personnel. Scientists at Pennington Biomedical Research Center and the Military Nutrition Division at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine are collaborating on the design, execution and analysis of the 5 research projects that fall within three topic areas: Operational Stress and Nutritional Requirements; Nutrition, Inflammation and Resiliency; and Healthy Eating and Behavior. The 5 projects are as follows:1. Determine the physiological and psychological effects of testosterone during severe energy deficit and recovery2. Determine the substrate utilization, exercise performance, and skeletal muscle response to energy deficit and altitude acclimatization3. Effects of energy balance and energy deficit on inflammatory response4. Go for Green (GFG) Effectiveness5. Development of a valid and military-appropriate survey tool for the assessment of Soldier eating behaviors. The outcomes will provide the scientific basis to develop novel nutritional programs, products and strategies that promote Warfighter health, performance and resilience to operational stress.
