Featured, Site Information

Nutrition Wonderland Fans-

We have some exciting news: we have added two quality fellows to our team here.  First up is Brian Mossop, a professional neuroscientist that wants to bring health information to the public.  Specifically, Brian will be dealing with conditions effecting the brain, like Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Autism.   His posts will be forthcoming on a bi-weekly basis at first and will hopefully grow from there.

Additionally, Brian Rice has joined the team as a Publications Manager.  Mr. Rice will be helping us increase the frequency we are posting information to the website as we move towards our year end goal of having a major content contribution every business day of the week.

Below is a snapshot of the the new faces from the Staff section on our website:

Brian Mossop – Staff Neuroscientist

Brian Mossop

Brian Mossop

Brian Mossop is a scientist and a science blogger. He completed a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Lafayette College in 2001, but soon traded his soldering iron for a pipetter when he enrolled in a graduate program in biomedical engineering at Duke University. He finished his Ph.D. in 2006, where his thesis focused on gene and drug delivery for cancer treatment. His postdoctoral work focused on the the brain, and he conducted neuroscience research at UCSF and a Bay Area start-up company. He now focuses on in vivo physiology of neurodegeneration and neurological disease at a biotech company near San Francisco, using both microscopy and electrophysiology. Although his scientific career is extremely fulfilling, Brian’s passion is to bring relevant health and medical information to the public. In 2008, Brian began collaborating with Thomas Goetz, the Executive Editor of Wired Magazine on his blog and forthcoming book, The Decision Tree, which aims to revolutionize preventive medicine by creating a more proactive patient. In his free time, Brian is an avid runner. Although a short sprinter (50-200m) in college, he’s recently discovered the wonders of long-distance road racing. He currently lives in San Francisco with his wife.
