Oregon State: Professor Joins Distinguished Group of Scientists

Dr. Brad Cardinal, professor at Oregon State University College of Public Health and Human Sciences (CPHHS), was recently recognized by the Oregon Academy of Science with its Outstanding Oregon Scientist Award. Dr. Cardinal was honored for his “considerable contributions to the fields of exercise psychology and kinesiology and exercise science while at Oregon State University.”

The award was first granted in 1949. Dr. Cardinal joined Oregon State in 1997 and is the first CPHHS faculty member to receive the honor. He is the fifth OSU scientist to be recognized, including Dr. Linus Pauling, who received the award in 1987.

Dr. Cardinal currently serves as past-president of the National Academy of Kinesiology and chair of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition Science Board.

A prolific scholar, he has published more than a dozen books and chapters and 250 peer-reviewed journal articles. He’s delivered 350 presentations at the state, regional, national and international levels.

Oregon State University recognized him in 2017 with its OSU Alumni Association Distinguished Professor Award and in 2009 with their Elizabeth P. Ritchie Distinguished Professor Award.

The Outstanding Oregon Scientist Award was first granted in 1949. Three awards were given that year. Dr. Earl L. Packard, who served as founding dean of the College of Science at Oregon State University, was one of the original three recipients.
