Thorne’s Science Team Featured at Personalized Nutrition 2018 Forum in Seattle

Two of Thorne’s team of highly respected scientific pioneers will be among the featured speakers on November 7, 2018, at Personalized Nutrition 2018, a forum for health practitioners, researchers and scientists in the field of personalized medicine.

The conference in Seattle runs through November 9, with the goal of translating the science of NutriGenomics into practice. NutriGenomic science, which promises to revolutionize the discipline of nutrition, provides deep insights into a person’s unique health trajectory.

Chris Mason, Ph.D., co-founder of Onegevity Health’s new platform that uses molecular diagnostics to deliver consumer-friendly recommendations for customized nutrition, supplements and probiotics to improve health outcomes, will speak on Genome Malleability & its Significance for Human Health and Longevity, highlighting cutting-edge genome research that contributes to each person’s individual longevity.

Thorne’s Chief Medical Officer Robert Rountree, M.D., will share his expertise on The Role of Microbes, Genes and Metagenes in IBS and IBD, in which he’ll help highlight nutritional interventions shown to influence outcomes of IBS and IBD management.

Thorne continues to use science in its mission to become the world’s leader in health and wellness by helping consumers take control of their health. Earlier this year, Thorne introduced five at-home health tests. The home tests measure an individual’s biomarkers to uncover health insights, which are converted into a personal plan for what to eat, how to exercise, and whether to add nutritional supplements to improve health outcomes.
