I’m super excited to share this interview with you. I had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Benjamin Bikman. We talked a lot about insulin resistance and the concerns going on right now.

Dr. Ben Bikman’s research focus is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms that mediate the disruption that causes and accompanies metabolic disorders, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and dementia. Driven by his academic training (Ph.D. in bioenergetics and postdoctoral fellowship with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders), he is currently exploring the contrasting roles of insulin and ketones as key drivers of metabolic function. He frequently publishes his research in peer-reviewed journals and presents at international science meetings.

Dr. Bikman spends most of his time tending to his responsibilities as a professor and researcher in the Department of Physiology and Developmental Biology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. However, his passion and energy have driven him beyond science to develop tools and resources that are helping change the world’s health through insulin control.
