Salvatore Carbone PhD, MS, FHFSA

Assistant Professor, Kinesiology and Health Sciences, College of Humanities and Sciences, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA

Dr. Carbone obtained his BS in Nutrition and Dietetics at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, then completed a MS in Cellular and Molecular Nutrition at University of Urbino Carlo Bo, Italy, and a PhD in Molecular Medicine and Metabolism at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. His research investigates the role of different dietary interventions and body composition phenotypes on cardiorespiratory fitness and energy metabolism in patients with obesity and heart failure, with a focus on heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. To complete this project, he has received a Career Development Award from the American Heart Association. He is also investigating the effect of glucose-lowering agents such as sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors on cardiorespiratory fitness in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, for which he has received a Mentored Clinical & Population Research Award from American Heart Association. He is a member of the ASPEN Research Committee and the ASPEN COVID-19 Nutrition Taskforce.
