Dr. Borum currently teaches undergraduate biochemistry, graduate nutrition, and medical school clinical nutrition classes. Her translational science research program spans questions concerning biosynthesis, transport, and metabolic function of carnitine to the use of macronutrients to prevent and treat previously refractory neurological syndromes such as epilepsy.  For more than two decades the Precision Ketogenic Therapy Program has combined precision nutrition with precision medicine for the individual patient.
