    Dr Benjamin Bikman is an assistant professor of Physiology & Developmental Biology at Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah. Dr Bikman conducts basic and applied research into the origins of insulin resistance, as well as the molecular mediators of ketogenic diets. His laboratory has two aims: Firstly, he and his team aim to identify the molecular mechanisms that explain the increased risk of disease that accompanies weight gain, with particular emphasis on the etiology of insulin resistance and disrupted mitochondrial function. Secondly, they hope to reveal novel cellular processes that are responsible for fat development. For more information, call +1 801.422.1678, email bikman@byu.edu or visit bikmanlab.byu.edu.

    Dr Hunter Gillies is an MD  in the US who spent 16 years in industry developing treatments for rare diseases. He is currently on sabbatical exploring opportunities to develop interventions to target cardiometabolic diseases. In particular, Dr Gillies is looking at ways to diagnose insulin resistance early and also ways to treat insulin resistance beyond the necessary nutritional approach of a low-carbohydrate intake.
