Now that the big day is almost upon us it is time for you to meet our speakers! Each of them has a unique story to share with you, so just to give you a little taste of what awaits you at TEDxBinnenhof we have given them all the opportunity to introduce themselves to you. Today our speaker Dr. Nora Khaldi from Ireland writes about her personal journey and her inspiration for Nuritas™.
Very soon 1 in 3 people in the world will have a disease. The health costs for governments to sustain this will quickly become impossible.
It is thus becoming blindingly apparent that the current system is not sustainable and a new approach to disease is needed to help billions of people live longer and happier lives with the prevention of illness.
This is what ultimately inspires me.
I created Nuritas™ to make a difference in the lives of billions of people and to shift the outlook of current global health systems.
Nuritas™ is the first company in the world to use new technologies like artificial intelligence and DNA analysis to find and develop natural, sustainable, and affordable disease-beating molecules that have no damaging side-effects. These ingredients are able to be included in many different products, from personal care to food, to help people prevent illness.
My journey to the creation of Nuritas™ began in Mathematics and evolved into a PhD in Molecular Evolution and Bioinformatics, followed by post-doctoral work in the food area.
The most significant information that I took from my research career was that the food and health systems have to be rethought. Within all of my research and collaborations with industry, I began to understand that the key to reducing and preventing disease begins and ends with food and the best way to uncover what was really in food was looking at the data within to see what food is fully capable of. And that’s exactly what we do at Nuritas™. We are able to unlock disease-beating molecules, called peptides, within food that have life-changing effects such as reducing inflammation, reducing muscle loss and regulating blood glucose. These health issues are what billions of people are dealing with and a simple revaluation of the health system, such as what Nuritas™ is envisioning, will help these people live healthier lives.
I am extremely excited to present at TEDx Binnenhof on March 31st alongside the most innovative companies in Europe. I think we are all helping billions of people in so many ways and these incredible ideas presented on the TEDx stage are truly inspiring.
I hope that what we are doing here at Nuritas™ inspires others to join us in the journey with collaborative work and partnerships. We look forward to meeting you all there and changing the world together!
