Meet our Founders
Dr. Aylia Mohammadi
Co-founder and Scientific Director
BSc (Physics), MSc (Physics), PhD (Biological Physics), Postdoctoral fellowship (Inflammatory Bowel Disease)
Aylia has a life-long love of science and food. She is an award-winning public speaker, and enjoys the challenge of taking dense scientific concepts and making them understandable to non-scientists. Her graduate training was inherently multidisciplinary, integrating techniques in molecular biology, machine vision, neuroscience and genetics. Her passion for everything food and science led her to delve into understanding the complex, multifactorial research in diet and human health in parallel to her doctoral studies. For her postdoctoral research, she examined underlying molecular mechanisms of inflammatory bowel disease, and had a deep personal interest in the role of diet in this process. This is where she met Sheri, and they instantly clicked with a synergy of research and clinical expertise and collaborated on a project looking at diet in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Co-founder and Nutrition Director
Registered Dietitian, MSc (Quality Improvement), BSc (Dietetics), Certified Nutrition Support Clinician (CNSC)
Sheri’s nutrition philosophy embraces quality and personalization. With over 10 years practicing as a clinical dietitian in gastrointestinal health, she has seen first-hand how our bodies uniquely respond to nutrition. Foods that heal one person may cause distress in another, making it difficult to find the right food to nourish your body and optimize your health, energy and mood. Grounded in her belief of food as medicine, Sheri’s approach is science based with a focus on high quality, sustainable and delicious food.
Together, Aylia and Sheri have over 20 years combined experience in research and nutrition, and have built Genotique with a sincere, honest desire to offer the very best in personalized nutrition, incorporating the best science.
Our Commitment to You
We believe in transparency and honesty. We are passionate about simplifying the confusing messages about food and nutrition with the best science and clinical practices that can only come from years of experience. Learn with us.
A famous study estimated that there is a 17-year gap between when the scientific community adopts knowledge from rigorous research and when health practitioners incorporate this knowledge into clinical practice.
This is further complicated in the diet space, since human nutrition research is notoriously hard to perform, and dissemination of clinical knowledge is made even harder by the lack of community access to registered dietitians.
Genotique is dedicated to changing this. Join us on our mission
