Tommy Wood MD, PhD Joins the LMHR Measurement Project
I’m extremely excited to announce Tommy Wood is now joining the team for the LMHR Measurement Project.
Tommy brings a wealth of experience and research aptitude that Spencer and I are quite excited to have onboard.
Tommy Wood’s Background
Tommy Wood is a Research Assistant Professor in the Pediatrics Department at the University of Washington. He received a bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences and Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge before studying medicine at the University of Oxford. He worked as a junior doctor in central London for two years after medical school, and then moved to Norway to complete a PhD in physiology and neuroscience at the University of Oslo.
Tommy is currently President of Physicians for Ancestral Health, is a director of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine, and is on the scientific advisory board of Hintsa Performance. Tommy has also coached and competed in multiple sports including rowing, CrossFit, powerlifting, and ultra-endurance racing. Alongside his career in medicine and research, Tommy has published and spoken on multiple topics surrounding lifestyle-based approaches to health.
Big Things Ahead, But We’re Not Allowed to Say Yet
The good news is that the LMHR Project may soon be getting upgraded into something much better with Tommy Wood’s help.
The bad news is that I can’t tell you what yet. The potential improvement requires that we follow specific rules, including our not talking about the process itself. I’ll simply say this will make sense once the initial part of this process is finalized, and I’ll be sharing it here when or if it is.
Update on Signing Up
IMPORTANT — we will not have a signup area for the LMHR Measurement Project for at least two or more months. The reason for this has to do with what I was explaining in the previous section. The direction we’re looking at will be very likely a big improvement, but it requires we don’t sign anyone up until a certain conditions are met first.
In the mean time, keep checking back here at the website for announcements as they develop. Thanks again for your patience!
The following is a roadmap I put together to help everyone get a sense of the intended scheduling.
This roadmap includes the documentary schedule as well, which will be substantial, particularly in January and February. We’ll be developing the project in parallel and getting it ready for a summer launch. I can’t announce too much on the specifics yet as we’re still in the designing stages.
Please Keep Sharing and Contributing!
We currently estimate around $2,000 in testing overhead expenses for each LMHR participant. Which means that as of this writing, we can fund nearly 33 total. But as I mentioned in Houston, I’d love if we could get to the magic number of 100. At that level, we’ll have a very sizable population given the effect size. I know it’s a stretch goal, but we’re already 1/3rd of the way there!
