Dr. Laura Power is a research scientist, licensed clinical nutritionist, and lecturer who has spent 20 years measuring and identifying human biological types. Through her Biotype Research Corporation, she has conducted two major research projects in two areas of human physiology and nutrition. The first set of research studies identifies 8 Biotypes based on hormone patterns, body types, metabolism and nutrition -- with separate data for males and females. The second set of research studies identifies 5 Biotype Diets based on blood types correlated to 4 kinds of food allergies. Both projects took approximately 20 years each, and were conducted simultaneously. She holds numerous copyrights, trademarks, and has a patent pending. She has several other exciting research projects planned for the future.
She holds a Masters Degree in Nutritional Sciences (nutritional biochemistry) from the University of Maryland, and a doctorate degree in Clinical Nutrition (holistic) from International University.

His average course rating from UCLA students over 6 years is an exceptional 8.4 out of 9 stars.
Among various research projects, Professor Nardi has created a computer model of the body's hormone system. The computer model captures various hormone effects on body shape, metabolism, toxemia and personality. It helps validate Dr. Power's theory of The Eight Biotypes. He is currently creating an interactive webpage that allows users to enter vital statistics and get back a computer-generated biotype profile. This will provide a tremendous promotional tool to coincide with publication of 8 biotypes since everyone who obtains a profile will need the information in the book to improve their health.
