About us

P4H is a spin off of Imdea-Alimentación and La Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM).

P4H offers all the guarantees of quality and professionalism since it is a Knowledge Based Company (EBC) of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and a Technology Based Company (EBT) of the IMDEA Food Institute.

We develop genetic tests and issue a report with nutritional recommendations and sports performance aimed at covering specific objectives such as increasing sports performance, improving health and aging through personalized nutrition

We offer scientifically validated tests and personalized reports based on cutting-edge research and rigorous standards of scientific evidence, which supports its effectiveness.

We use a unique and personalized chip that detects the genetic variations selected by our researchers. All laboratory tests for P4H are conducted in an IMDEA certified laboratory.

The project is promoted by researchers from Imdea Alimentación and UAM:

Dr. Guillermo Reglero

IMDEA Food Director and Director of the Food Products for Precision Nutrition Program.

Guillermo J. Reglero Rada, PhD in Chemistry (1985). Full Professor of Food Sciences at the University Autonomade Madrid (1999) and Senior Researcher of Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC (on leave). Between 1993 and 1994 he worked as Technical of Industrial Projects for Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial (CDTI). Between 2002 and 2006 he was the Manager of the Food Science and Technology Program of the National Plan of R&D.

Between 2005 and 2010 he was a member of the Steering Committee of the UAM-CSIC Instituto de Investigación en Ciencias de la Alimentación, CIAL. Currently he is the Director of IMDEA Food Institute. He works in a research group on food and health. He has directed 6 projects of the National Plan of R&D, 3 projects of industrial R&D Innpacto and 70 projects in collaboration with companies. Since 2005 he has coordinated a Program of a ctivities in Technology funded in three calls for the Comunidad de Madrid and composedof groups of 10 research centers and hospitals.

He has participated in projects of the EU Framework Program, as well as Consolider and Cenit Ingenio 2010 Programs. Currently heis involved in 3 projects of the Strategic National Consortia Program Research (CIEN). He is author over 250 publications of international impact and 3 licensed patents in exploitation. In 2001 he received the Award of the American Oil Chemists Society and in 2008 the Prize of the Spanish Society of Gastrononía as Best Spanish Researcher in Food Science andin 2015 the Fundación García Cabrerizo Award to the Invention.

Dra. Ana Ramirez

Deputy Director, Director of the Precision Nutrition Program and Group leader of the Molecular Oncology Groupology Group.

Dr. Ana Ramírez de Molina has developed her scientific career in the field of lipid metabolism, molecular oncology, nutrition and cancer. She has worked as an associated researcher in the Traslational Oncology Unit CSIC-UAM-La Paz Hospital (Madrid), and has performed long postdoctoral stays at Cancer Research UK Centre for Therapeutics (London) and the Molecular Pathology Division of the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (New York).

She has published more than 60 scientific articles in her research field, is co-inventor of 6 patents in different phases of exploitation by a biotechnology company and has supervised 6 PhD Thesis. Several of her patents promoted the creation of a
spin-off company from CSIC focused on the development of new tumour markers and therapies in Cancer in which she was former Director of Research, Development and Innovation for more than 3 years. She joined IMDEA Food Institute in 2010, where she leads the Program of Precision Nutrition and Cancer.

From 2011 she has been the Coordinator of Research, Development and Transfer, and in 2014 was promoted to Deputy Director of the Institute. In 2002 she was awarded with the prize Young Researchers MSD, in 2003 the extraordinary doctorate recognition as the best Thesis of her promotion in Molecular Biology, and in 2016 the 8th March distinction from the Community of Madrid as an outstanding woman in Science.
