Dr. Yiftach Gepner recently received his Ph.D. from Ben-Gurion University’s Department of Public Health, under the mentorship of world-class nutritionist, Prof. Iris Shai. He has been an instructor in BGU’s Department of Epidemiology and is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Central Florida, where he is part of a research team conducting randomized trials focusing on exercise physiology. When he returns to Israel, where he lives with his wife and three children in Moshav Ein-Habsor, located in the Negev, he hopes to introduce exercise physiology in Israel as a new field of research.
