One foot in leading edge-research and the other in high performance sport Dana plays a unique simultaneous role of researcher and practitioner. As a Project Scientist in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior at University California Davis she leads human studies in the Baar lab focused on nutrition strategies to reduce injury, accelerate return to play and improve explosive performance. As a high-performance sport dietitian Dana focuses on two polar sports; the National Basketball Association and World Tour Cycling with Israel Start-Up Nation. She has spent about a decade racing bikes but now focuses on helping others get faster, fitter and win the biggest prestigious events.
