    Rick Weiss, Viocare, President & Founder, Princeton, NJ

    After working at Bell Labs, Digital Equipment Corporation, and Squibb, Mr. Weiss started Viocare in 1993 with the goal of optimizing individualís wellness by combining a personalized lifestyle counseling protocol with scientifically-proven dietary and physical activity analysis technologies. Mr. Weiss has been awarded two New Jersey Small Business Development Center Success Awards (1998, 2005).

    The first tool created by Viocare, ProNutra, is now the gold standard for running metabolic feeding studies and has been used by over 80 research centers and supported three clinical drug trials. Rick has been the Principal Investigator on 17 National Institutes of Health grants and contracts, valued at over $8 million. These projects have formed the basis of Viocareís product line including the corporate wellness program, VioWell; electronic food frequency questionnaires (FFQ) VioScreen and VioFFQ; and dietary analysis software ProNutra and ProNESSy.

    Viocare has worked in multiple technologies and techniques for measuring dietary intake and physical activity expenditure. Together with USDA, under a Cooperative Research Agreement, Viocare created a prototype PDA tool for collecting weighed and estimated food records. He is currently working on several NIH grants focused on dietary assessment and behavioral change. A National Cancer Institute project that uses an electronic FFQ and generates personalized behavioral feedback; a National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases grant for a sustainable community health web portal (www.princetonlivingwell.com) and a National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute cooperative grant as part of the NIH Genes, Environment and Health Initiative (GEI) to develop a simple, inexpensive, and convenient new dietary assessment tool using a mobile phone. This last tool, called the Mobile Food Intake Visualization and Voice Recognizer (FIVR), uses a mobile phone to help measure a mealís nutritional content. The innovative system uses a combination of photographs and speech recognition in real-time to identify the food and generate an accurate portion size measurement of food consumed by a user. Mr. Weiss holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Math from Carnegie Mellon and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Princeton University.
