Interests: timing of creatine supplementation during resistance-exercise on muscle and bone biology
The age-related decrease in muscle health is a main limiting factor for functional independence and longevity. Nutrient provision and physical activity are two key regulators of muscle function. Specifically, amino acids and dietary proteins influence muscle protein kinetics in response to endurance and weight-bearing exercise. This special issue will highlight emerging research on interactions between amino acids, dietary proteins, and exercise training that have potential to impact muscle health and biology.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charges (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 500 CHF (Swiss Francs) for well prepared manuscripts submitted before 30 June 2012. The APC for manuscripts submitted from 1 July 2012 onwards are 1000 CHF per accepted paper.
