Meet Our Science Team
Aiming to bring the latest science to you first.
Dr Tanya Petrossian, PhD
Epigenetics Clinical Lead
She is also pioneering the development of the first non-hormone therapeutic for endometriosis – the number one cause of infertility and disability in women during their reproductive years.
Christopher Collins, MSST, CISSN
Head of Physiology
He has graduated from Myerscough College, Edge Hill University and Queen Margaret University with degrees in sports therapy, medical imaging and sports specific nutrition.
He has worked with multiple professional football teams, corporate well-being with Nestle, across 3 different hospital sites and designed multiple predictive health algorithms. Christopher believes that genetic science holds the key for performance enhancement in athletes, engaging people with their health and predicting possible health problems before they occur.
James Brown, BSc
Co-Founder and Nutrigenomics Director
James switched his attention to the world of genetics following the deaths of 2 of his younger cousins from cystic fibrosis in 2010 and gained his nutrigenomics degree from La Trobe University in 2015. He now provides a wealth of experience and knowledge with how our genes fully interact with our food, exercise, lifestyle and environments.
