Que Collins, PhD, MA, MS is a leading scientist when it comes to developing and applying nutrition and metabolic therapies to treat cancer in people and pets. He holds a PhD in Clinical Immunology, an MS in Oncotherapeutics, an MA in Experimental Pathology, and a BS in Poverty Health Care and Cancer Epidemiology. He is the Co-Founder and Principal Investigator at Cignature Health Metabolic Clinic now known as the Center for Deuterium Depletion. This is the first clinic in the world to use deuterium and tracer technologies to describe and follow the health status of patients with metabolic disorders such as cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders. He is the Principal Investigator at Epigenix Foundation.
