Dr. Erdman is Emeritus Professor of Food Science and Human Nutrition, Professor of Internal Medicine and Professor of Nutrition in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana. Dr. Erdman's training and expertise encompass the nutritional and physiological biochemistry of man and animals. He has authored over 200 original research articles on these subjects and has over 350 total publications including other articles and chapters. His H-Index in the Web of Science is 50. He is a member of a variety of professional organizations including the American Society for Nutrition (ASN), the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), and the American Heart Association (AHA). He is past President of the American Society for Nutritional Sciences (now ASN), has been elected Fellow for ASN, AHA and IFT. He has served on 27 committees for the Institute of Medicine (generally through the Food and Nutrition Board [FNB]), National Academy of Sciences (NAS). He served on the FNB for 9 years, 6 as Vice Chair and as Chair of the Standing Committee on the Scientific Evaluation of Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) and Chair of the Committee on Military Nutrition Research. This committee published the report "Nutrition and Traumatic Brain Injury" in 2011. For his extensive contributions to the NAS, he was named as Lifetime National Associate of the NAS in 2001 and was elected as a Member of the Institute of Medicine (now National Academy of Medicine), NAS in 2003. Other honors include: receipt of the Samuel Cate Prescott Award for Research and the William Cruess Award for Teaching from IFT: the Dannon Institute Mentorship Award from ASN; being named as an Original Member in Agricultural Science by ISI as an Highly Cited Researcher (top 0.05%); and several University of Illinois Excellent and Outstanding Teaching awards. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of ILSI- NA. He is senior editor of the 10th Edition, Present Knowledge of Nutrition published in 2012. Dr Erdman received his B.S., M.S., M.Ph., and Ph.D. in Food Science from Rutgers University.
