UB and “New York Times”-bestselling author Dr. Peter D’Adamo announced new Center for Excellence in Generative Medicine

The University of Bridgeport (UB) and world-renown Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo, author of the bestselling Eat Right 4 Your Type books and an internationally acclaimed clinician and researcher, announced today a collaborative launch of the Center for Excellence in Generative Medicine (COE), which will open on campus in late spring 2012.

The COE—to be located at 115 Broad Street—will continue to train naturopathic doctors while broadening the University’s College of Naturopathic Medicine’s curriculum. It also will sponsor research in the fields of nutrigenomics and epigenics, which examines how human genes interact and are affected by the environment, lifestyle, and diet.

University President Neil A. Salonen, Dr. David M. Brady, Vice Provost for Health Sciences, and Dr. D’Adamo will sign an official agreement for the Center at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, January 24, at a ceremony to be held on the eighth floor of the Wahlstrom Library building, 126 Park Avenue, Bridgeport.

“Dr. Peter D’Adamo is a giant in the field of naturopathic and integrative medicine, and he has made transformational changes in the way thousands of doctors treat their patients. He has taught them to better manage and reduce patient’s risk for various chronic health conditions. Having him here at UB uniquely allows our students and interns to be mentored by him while in their primary training and provides patients in the Greater Bridgeport area affordable access to this comprehensive approach to health care,” said Brady.

Patients seeking care have been served at the College of Naturopathic Medicine Clinic, located at 60 Lafayette Street on the UB campus, for years. With the addition of COE, more patients will be able to receive this cutting-edge care, Brady added.

As planned, the center builds upon D’Adamo’s work, which became well known with the 1996 publication of Eat Right 4 Your Type, which promoted the ideas of blood type, diet, and personalized nutrition based on individuals’ blood type. For the past 15 years, D’Adamo has continued his research on human biochemical individuality and he has published over 20 books, including the recent, Textbook of Generative Medicine.
