About the Instructors

Loved by Practitioners

Ryan Smith
Founder of TruDiagnostic

Ryan received a BA in biochemistry from Transylvania University before heading to medical school in 2013. After passing USMLE Step 1, he decided to leave and open up a pharmacy in the United States that focused on peptide synthesis and formulations for pharmaceutical preparations. That pharmacy, Tailor Made Compounding, became the 4th fastest growing company in healthcare in the US and grew to 80 million in revenue within 3 years.  Through this pharmacy work, Ryan saw the value of preventative medicine.  Many of the physicians Tailor Made served were treating age as a disease and a primary outcome but needed better tools to measure this process. As a result, Ryan exited Tailor Made in 2020 to create TruDiagnostic.

TruDiagnostic is a CLIA certified lab and health data company which specializes in understanding and reporting insights found through Epigenetic methylation data. Since starting in 2020, TruDiagnostic has created the largest private epigenetic database in the world with over 15,000 patients tested on the EPIC850k array.  From this dataset, they have created many new algorithms to interpret methylation data including algorithms to predict inflammatory markers, disease diagnosis, telomere length, aging pace, immune cell subsets, cellular replication, and more.

Jessica Lasky-Su, DSc, MS
Associate Professor in Medicine and Associate Statistician, Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Dr. Lasky-Su has been a leader in applying metabolomics research to epidemiology, covering a range of chronic diseases over the life course, with a focus on respiratory outcomes (e.g. asthma). Much of her work has focused on “integrative metabolomics” - the integration of other omics with using a metabolomic-centric perspective to study complex diseases. With integrative metabolomics as an emerging field, Dr. Lasky’s scholarship has contributed broadly, with peer-reviewed publications that focus on a range of disease outcomes (cancers, respiratory, ocular, infections, metabolic, neurodevelopment/mental health) and exposures (air pollutants, PFAS, nutrition, exercise) that may have an impact on health over the life course. Her investigative success is also demonstrated with >225 peer-reviewed publications. To date, she has been invited to give > 40 national and international talks. Dr. Lasky-Su has recently expanded her focus to study multiomics over the life course in the context of aging using the Mass General Brigham (MGB-Biobank), where she has generated a large, curated biobank cohort with multiomic data. As the most recent past president of the Metabolomics Society – the largest metabolomics society in the world – and the chairman of the NIH’s Consortium of Metabolomics Studies (COMETS) consortium – the largest international consortium of prospective metabolomics cohorts – over the past four years, her leadership in this area is unparalleled. She has also spearheaded new efforts, including initiating STROBE-metabolomics to provide reporting guidelines in this area and the Metabolomic Epidemiology Task Group to define and formalize this emerging field of study. In addition, Dr. Lasky-Su has extensive funding in multiomics; she is the PI/MPI of 4 current NIH R01s in metabolomics, the PI on multiple private grants, and the Consortium PI several R/U NIH grants. Her success is also reflected in the success of her mentees and co-mentees who have received K grants and gone on to have successful research careers, with some achieving a rank as high as full professor.

Where can I access the bootcamp once I am signed up?

After you are signed up for the bootcamp and have created your account, you can login at app.rupauniversity.com!

Will I be able to ask personal medical questions in the live Q&A about my results?

As the live Q&A classes are not HIPAA compliant and not part of a medical visit, personal medical advice will not be discussed.

How will I be able to ask questions to the bootcamp instructor?

Every week during the bootcamp, there will be a 60min live Q&A webinar where you can ask questions in the chat.

How long are the pre-recorded videos and the live Q&A classes?

The pre-recorded classes are a variety of lengths from 10 minutes to 60 minutes.

The live classes are always 60 minutes long.

I’m using this test in my practice but would like to learn more, will the classes teach advanced information?

It will be a mix. There will be more foundational level videos to help set the stage if you are newer and more advanced level clinical pearls, videos, or questions answered during the live Q&A sessions.

I’m new to functional/integrative medicine, will this bootcamp help?

Yes! There will be a mix of foundational classes to help get you introduced to the topic up to more advanced clinical pearls and information that build on each other. The live class Q&A sessions will also be a mix of beginning to advanced information. The goal is to have everyone who goes through the bootcamp feeling more confident about ordering and understanding the test.

Are there pre-requisites I need to take to sign up for the bootcamp?

No! Feel free to sign-up and jump in to learn all about this lab and topic!

Does Rupa University offer certifications or other credentials?

Our education is designed to level up practitioners and give you actionable tools to quickly become more successful.

Will you have access to the presentations and materials after the bootcamp?

Yes! You will have access to all of the presentations and materials associated with a bootcamp for up to 12 months after the start date.

Can I get a refund?

We want to make sure you're getting the most out of your bootcamp experience! Our prices reflect the high-quality educational content provided in each course. Just a friendly reminder that coupons are supplemental to the education and hold no cash value. For this reason, we are not able to re-issue expired coupons.

Our Rupa University bootcamps are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for another. We know that things come up (life happens!), so if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at university@rupahealth.com. We're always here to help! 💙

Do you cover exact protocols as part of your bootcamps?

Protocols are often (but not always) discussed in our bootcamps. A core part of lifestyle medicine is treating the individual, having a “standard protocol” is not always the right approach but can often be a useful starting point for learning about a disease or condition. Both functional and conventional approaches will be covered such as supplements and medications commonly in use.

What is the difference between a “ free live class” and the bootcamps?

The live classes are a free hour long weekly webinar you can sign up for as a practitioner on the Rupa platform. They are generally quick introductions to a lab, topic, health concern, or research by an expert that varies every week.

The bootcamp is a paid 4-6 week in-depth training that involve pre-recorded videos and live Q&A classes to help you understand a particular topic and test much more in-depth from a practical and tactical point of view.

Are other discount codes available I can use for being part of a group or organization?
