Scientific Advisory Board


The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) provides ongoing oversight of the NuVal® System's scoring engine, the ONQI® algorithm (which is owned and managed by Griffin Hospital), and its applications. Comprised of recognized nutrition and medical experts, many of whom played a key role in the initial development of the ONQI® algorithm, the SAB is responsible for the making timely adjustments to the algorithm as scientific advancements and changes in food supply conditions make appropriate. The SAB also helps coordinate and oversee ongoing scientific testing of the ONQI® algorithm and its influence on health outcomes.
