Genotique is built on the belief that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to eating. Instead, your diet should evolve as you do – we are here to meet you wherever you are in your health journey. By carefully interpreting your genetic data adhering to strict scientific standards, we will work to design a bespoke nutrition and wellness strategy just for you. With sustainability in mind, we combine the latest science with expert coaching from a Registered Dietitian for support that is highly personalized to your unique needs. Welcome to Genotique.
Meet our Founder
Dr. Aylia Mohammadi, Founder and Scientific Director
BSc (Physics), MSc (Physics), PhD (Biological Physics), Postdoctoral fellowship (Inflammatory Bowel Disease)
Aylia is the Founder and Scientific Director of Genotique Nutrition Inc. She is a TEDx speaker (TEDxWinnipeg 2019), and enjoys the challenge of taking dense scientific concepts and providing clarity to non-scientists. She obtained her PhD in Biological Physics from the Donnelly Centre for Cellular & Biomolecular Research in Toronto and subsequently completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute. Aylia has a life-long love of science and food. She has been an expert contributor to national media and has spoken at international conferences and workshops about her areas of scientific expertise, as well as supporting women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).
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. Her evidence-based, integrative approach to personalized nutrition and health is the foundation for the Genotique process.
With customization at the core of our approach, Genotique was designed with you in mind. We are committed to empowering you with the knowledge and tools to improve and optimize your health and overall wellbeing. Each program we build begins with careful interpretation of your DNA results, but that is only the first step of the Genotique experience. Environmental factors that interact with your genetics play a key role in optimal health. From the moment you fill out our intake form, you will notice our attention to important details about your diet and lifestyle to help us tailor our recommendations specifically to you.
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. We are inundated with conflicting messages about nutrition and what we should be eating. If you are left feeling confused about the information out there, you are not alone. We at Genotique are passionate about simplifying the process with the best science and clinical practices that can only come from years of experience.
We offer a diverse range of programs to suit every need, from the curious individual looking for personalized guidance to the athlete looking to optimize performance. Our goal is to provide you with a plan that is sustainable and realistic – our team is here to guide you through each touchpoint.
