ZOE is a multidisciplinary start-up composed of world-leading scientists, entrepreneurs, engineers, product managers and designers that’s paving the way for personalised nutrition research.

We are on a mission to improve health by harnessing individuals’ unique biology to provide personalised nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. The ZOE nutritional product is now available to the public in the US and the UK. Launched two years ago, the product consists of an at-home test kit that empowers the user to understand their own body and eat for their biology. Users can discover their distinct responses to food based on blood sugar, blood fat and the gut microbiome and use this information to make choices about what to eat, but also how to eat it. Together with this product, ZOE continues running the PREDICT Program of research by teaming up with leading academic scientists and tech partners around the world to conduct nutrition research studies that form the basis of our nutritional understanding and product development.ABOUT THE TEAMThe Nutrition Science Team is a diverse one.
