Dr. Ward is a Professor in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences at Brock University where she holds a Canada Research Chair in Bone and Muscle Development. Wendy’s research program, funded by major government granting agencies (NSERC, CIHR, CFI), studies how foods and food components may set a better trajectory for bone health throughout the lifespan. The overall goal of her research team is to develop dietary strategies that help protect against osteoporosis and related fractures, and to understand the potential mechanisms of action. These dietary strategies include novel foods and food components such as flaxseed and its omega-3 fatty acid; fish oil; flavonoids in tea and citrus; and soy and its isoflavones. She has published many peer-reviewed articles, invited reviews and book chapters on the topic of nutrition, with particular emphasis on nutritional programming of bone health as well as use of herbal and nutritional supplements.
