About Ryan Smith

Ryan Smith attended Transylvania University and graduated with a degree in Biochemistry. After finishing all the educational curriculum and passing USMLE Step 1 he decided to leave and open up a pharmacy in the United States that focused on peptide synthesis and formulations for pharmaceutical preparations. That pharmacy, Tailor Made Compounding, became the 4th fastest growing company in healthcare in the US. During that time Ryan invested in several businesses in functional medicine space. Ryan exited Tailor Made in late 2020. Since then, Ryan has opened many businesses including TruDiagnostic, a company focusing on methylation array-based diagnostics for life extension and preventive healthcare. TruDiagnostic is a CLIA certified lab and health data company focused on serving integrative and functional medicine providers in the United States. TruDiagnostic has a commitment to research with over 30 approved clinical research studies investigating the epigenetic methylation changes of a variety of longevity and health interventions. Since Tru Diagnostic’s inception, they have created one of the largest private epigenetic health databases in the world with over 13,000 patients tested and continues to lead the space in epigenetic methylation interpretation and diagnostic prediction
