We are beyond ecstatic to announce that the research team on www.blogrefugio.com has significantly grown over the past week; our team now boasts an all-star line up we could have only dreamed of a year ago. Our three new editors are:
Gregory Lopez obtained a BA in biochemistry & molecular biology from Reed College, an MA in molecular biophysics from The Johns Hopkins University, and a PharmD from The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. He enjoys bringing his quantitative and analytical skills to bear on issues relevant to people's health and wellbeing.
Bill Willis PhD received a Bachelor's of Science in Chemistry and PhD in Biomedical Science at The Ohio State University. An avid member of the fitness industry for the past 15 years, Bill is currently a postdoctoral fellow where he is examining the role of metabolic stress in the control of protein synthesis and inflammation in health and disease.
Kamal Patel has an MPH and MBA from Johns Hopkins University, and is a PhD candidate in nutrition, researching the link between diet and chronic pain. He has published peer-reviewed articles on vitamin D and calcium as well as a variety of clinical research topics. Kamal's also been involved in research on fructose and liver health, mindfulness meditation, and nutrition in low income areas.
Combined with our current team of Kurtis Frank and Dr. Spencer Nadolsky, we now have an expert in almost all disciplines of nutrition and supplementation. We are really looking forward to seeing what their collective efforts will bring to www.blogrefugio.com
We've always been very particular about our independence and neutrality - our strength lies in the fact that we have no affiliations.
We now have six team members. Five of them exclusively deal with research, and the sixth, our co-founder Sol Orwell, makes sure that the site is running fine, emails are dealt with, and so forth. If there was any doubt about how serious we take our work, this should help clarify that.
