    Office Genomics, Pain Paradox in Family Medicine

    in Health

    How might we look at genomics in office practice in Family Medicine?  Dr. Jonas, your host for the Dr. Synonymous Show, will dream a bit about what we are doing now and what might be.


    Responding to patients with painful situations is challenging in Family Medicine.  We love our  patients.  They hurt- we help.  But, their brain might get dysregulated by the pain via "wind-up" and potentially by opiate medications for persistent moderate or severe pain.  With FDA tightening up on prescribing rules for , many more patients are seeing their doctor monthly.  How do we respond to their frustrations at having to come in monthly for their pain management?


    Pain is a paradox in Family Medicine.  Listen in for further discussion.

    Ecosystems Genomics – Studying the Earth’s DNA

    in Environment

    Matthew Sullivan, Assistant Professor, Departments of Microbiology and Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering Ohio State (also the co-founder of the Ecosystems Genomics Institute at the UA)


    You got it - I am going to really have to work for this one. A University of Arizona-led international team has uncovered new information about the ways marine viruses and microbes interact on a global scale and Matthew Sullivan shares with us why it's vitally important to understand complex interactions among ocean ecosystems, climate and biodiversity - perhaps more now than ever in the planet's history. Join me for some stimulating and relevant conversation. This show made possible through the generous support of Chapman Automotive Group.

  • In Short Order -- Dr. Mansoor S. Mohammed, BSc (Hons Mol Gen), PhD

    in Health

    Dr. Mansoor S. Mohammed is a recognized authority in the fields of medical genomics and personalized medicine.Prior to cofounding Younique Genomics, Dr. Mohammed served as the President and CEO of CombiMatrix Diagnostics where he oversaw the development of one of the most comprehensive genomics testing menus in the diagnostic industry. Prior to his tenure at CombiMatrix Diagnostics, Dr. Mohammed was the Director of Advanced Technologies at Quest Diagnostics, North America's largest reference laboratory. At Quest Diagnostics, he was honored with the Medical Innovation Award, the highest accolade given for excellence in medical research.


    Prior to his role at Quest Diagnostics, Dr. Mohammed was a co-founder and Director of Research and Development at Spectral Genomics. Dr. Mohammed pioneered the development of commercial Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) array technologies and was responsible for the design and launch of the industry's first commercially available CGH arrays. He was the co-primary author of the first peer-reviewed study utilizing CGH arrays in the clinical diagnosis of developmental abnormalities (2002) and later (2008) was the senior author of the first peer-reviewed study utilizing CGH arrays for clinical oncology purposes. Moreover, the CGH array technologies Dr. Mohammed helped to innovate became the basis for the discovery of genome copy number variations (CNVs). The latter has fundamentally altered and improved the way the human genome is viewed and interpreted, and has spawned thousands of studies and publications worldwide.


    Most recently, Dr. Mohammed has worked with leading medical practitioners to become one of the first in the world to incorporate genome CNV analyses into a comprehensive approach to personalized medicine.

    The Symphony of the Cells, Part Deux!

    in Health

    Last week we learned the importance of a single cell. We learned the structure and function of the cells and the necessity of having all the players symphonize.


    On Monday, 9/22/15 at 8PM eastern, we interview THE CONDUCTOR. Nutritional Biochemist Bill Downs will tell us how to conduct the cellular Symphony.


    From 1990 to 1996, Bill Downs, a nutritional biochemist, served as the staff nutritionist in a medical practice in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Because of his clinical experience there, he developed an approach to understanding and nutritionally managing the functions of biological systems he refers to as “Behavioral Biology.” This approach was the result of his investigations into the most fundamental causes of chronic degenerative diseases; the underlying nutritional inadequacies and biochemical imbalances that existed; and the body’s extreme defensive response measures to survive. This paradigm evolved to encompass epigenetic and nutrigenomic principles of nutrition and how they affect the ‘behavior’ of biological systems and overall health. 


    Bill was co-founder and CEO of LifeGen, Inc., a nutrigenomic company.  Downs is also co-founder of Impact Genomics and a Partner of IGENE, LLC. In January of 2014, Downs founded Victory Nutrition International, Inc. (VNI).  He co-developed the liposome breakthrough absorption technology (now patent-pending), trademarked as ‘Prodosome®’, which achieves unprecedented rapid (within 5 minutes) and sustained prolonged absorption of its nutraceutical payload. 


    Join us and learn how proper and high-level absorption is the key to healing. Bill is a great speaker and is knowledgeable in all aspects of health from the treatment of chronic illness to maximizing the perfomance of elite athletes!
