Dr. Nima Alamdari is Director of Scientific Affairs at Beachbody. He joined us from Harvard University where he was a faculty appointed Instructor at Harvard Medical School, Boston. Dr. Alamdari’s faculty and postdoctoral work at Harvard centered on elucidating the regulation, mechanisms, and physiological importance of muscle growth, breakdown, and strength in health and disease. Dr. Alamdari’s work has been supported by the government (National Institutes of Health, USA, Medical Research Council, UK), industry (GlaksoSmithKline, Sirtris, USA), and academia (Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, USA). Prior to moving “across the pond” he obtained a PhD in Muscle Metabolism and Physiology and a First Degree in Biochemistry and Biological Chemistry from The University of Nottingham, UK. Dr. Alamdari’s doctoral work was focused on the regulation of muscle fuel (carbohydrate and fat) and protein metabolism. Dr. Alamdari is author of over 20 original articles and reports in top international peer-reviewed journals in the fields of Physiology, Nutrition, and Muscle Metabolism. His work has also been presented at world-leading international conferences including Experimental Biology/FASEB (San Francisco, Washington DC, USA), The Physiological Society (London, UK), Cachexia Conference (Rome, Milan, Italy), European Muscle Conference (Padua, Italy), and The American College of Surgeons (Chicago, Boston, USA).
