Virta co-founders Dr. Stephen Phinney and Dr. Jeff Volek partnered with The Ohio State University’s Food Innovation Center to create a conference that gathered scientists and researchers to discuss the science of low carbohydrate nutrition. The conference was hosted by the OSU Food Innovation Center and the video recordings were sponsored by Virta Health. OSU and Virta have decided to make these videos free and available to the public.

He is a researcher specializing in diet, nutrition, and cancer. He has an undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a medical degree from Thomas Jefferson University, and he completed his residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
