The InnovAAte Team

In 2014, Hugh Dunstan, Tim Roberts and Margaret Macdonald had a significant breakthrough when they were able to quantify the potential losses of amino acids quantities in the sweat of athletes.

The following four years of research continued focusing on understanding the nature of amino acid losses in sweat from humans.

They have published their results in international peer-reviewed journals and have opened up a completely new understanding of protein turnover and amino acid metabolism in humans.

This ground-breaking research is the underlying foundation of InnovAAte’s next generation of Amino Acid Biotechnology products. With a far greater understanding of these important aspects of human biology, InnovAAte products are set to assist many people, no matter where they are in their life journey.

Angelo Agresti joined the team in 2021 to provide highly valued skills in business management, business intelligence and operations.
