Co-founders and research partners

  • David Rutenberg
  • Ilan Perry

The true sign of gifted scientists is that they always have more questions than answers. Professor Meir Shinitzky, the world-renowned brain researcher who had an insatiable thirst for knowledge, was this kind of visionary biophysicist. Among his prolific research in neurology, psychology, cancer, immune systems and heredity, Shinitzky worked to crack the code on the connection between the structure of our cells and the function of these microscopic units that number in the trillions in our bodies. Shinitzky had burning questions about our cell's gatekeepers, the membranes surrounding our cells. Shinitzky, among others, observed that there were direct links between the health of our membranes and our memory, ability to solve problems, emotions and other core life skills. Shinitzky's journey of a lifetime delved into our cells' building blocks. He discovered how to fuel brain and nerve cells so we can be better at what we do. Lipogen is the brainchild of Shinitzky's fact-finding mission. Shinitzky wrote over 200 scientific journal articles, published over a half-dozen books and registered dozens of scientific patents. He shared his award-winning insights with others as a professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science and as a visiting professor at Duke University, and lectured for decades at industry forums, too many to count. Shinitzky's protégés continue to solve his unanswered mysteries, and are posing new questions that deliver the latest insights on improving our brain health so we can each reach optimal performance.
