Cape Town-based scientist, Dr Yael Joffe, recently received global recognition in the Perricone MD Born Seekers Campaign (San Francisco). The campaign featured 20 women who are ‘Born Seekers’, finding breakthroughs in science that impact lives for good.
“It’s been an incredible honour to be recognised in such a campaign, alongside some of the world’s most influential women in science”, said Joffe.
The campaign celebrates female trailblazers in science and innovation, women who have pushed boundaries, and have helped pave the way for young girls to learn and relate to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), making ground-breaking research findings bettering outcomes for patients and curing diseases; they are studying climate change, exploring the solar system; they are neuroscientists, astrophysicists, geneticists, and others making significant strides in their chosen fields.
Dr Joffe has spent much of her career becoming an internationally-recognized expert in the rapidly-emerging field of Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics. She has co-authored It’s Not Just Your Genes, The SNP Journal, and Genes to Plate, the first gene-based recipe book in Southern Africa. She is currently an Adjunct Professor, teaching Nutrigenomics at Rutgers University, and teaches an online Translational Nutrigenomics training course for health practitioners.
She founded 3X4 Clinics, the very first of its kind, offering gene-based personalised health, the 3X4 Network which will make its way across the country in May. And most recently, 3X4 Genetics, a world class genetic test which will bring her 17 years of experience in test development, clinical translation and nutrigenomic teaching.
