"GenoVive is changing the face of personalized health by continuing research efforts with Harvard."

ling the genetic basis of obesity and other chronic diseases. The success of GWA studies has demonstrated that it is the most powerful and reliable method to discover novel genetic determinants. However, no GWA study has been reported so far on weight loss in response to diet interventions. GenoVive wishes to bridge this gap through this new collaboration with Dr. Qi.  The data collected from this diet intervention trial will be used to create an extremely valuable genomic discovery database.  This database will allow for identification of all potential genetic markers which determine weight loss in response to diet interventions.  In addition, by establishing this GWA database, it will serve as a foundation to promote collaborations amongst researchers with common interest or PIs conducting other clinical trials to further validate any genetic markers that affect weight loss in response to various diet interventions in the future.

"We are privileged to continue our collaboration with Harvard School of Public Health," said Vic Castellon, PharmD., founder and CEO, GenoVive LLC.  "Having the abundant resources from such an esteemed university, and Dr. Qi's prolific research background, will allow us to probe deeper into this emerging field of nutritional science and personalized health to bring the latest discoveries to GenoVive's weight management solutions to Americans and our international partners."
