Meet Our Founder
Our founder, Ben Ong, is a leading authority on prostate and metabolic health. Upon being diagnosed with BPH, Ben shunned away from recommendations of medication, prostate biopsies, and surgeries. Instead, he set out on a mission to discover a natural, effective and side-effect-free solution for BPH. On unveiling the integral role of diet, lifestyle, and natural supplements, he decided to publish his bestselling book, ‘All About The Prostate,’ so that men worldwide could benefit from the wealth of research and scientific studies he uncovered.

Dr. Anene has built software tools for predicting the risk of prostate cancer progression and mapped the immune cells in tumor samples.
He has also published articles describing how different skin cancers progress to advanced diseases through changes in their DNA makeup.
He believes that patient care should be evidence-based and personalized. Research into the molecular mechanisms that drive cancer development and progression allows him to act on his beliefs and provide a better way for disease management.
Dr. Chinedu Anthony Anene is an experienced computational biologist with over eight years of experience applying informatics methods to broader medical science research. For his PhD, he characterized the miRNA mechanisms underlying the deregulation of endothelial cell function by platelet microparticles in cardiovascular diseases.
Following on from the above, he moved to Queen Mary University of London to perform research in cancer development and progression. He worked on the different aspects of cancer genomics and gene regulation in prostate and skin cancers. In his current role at London South Bank University and Queen Mary university, his current research is focused on applying novel computational approaches to multi-omics datasets to characterize the molecular mechanism of diseases (including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and infectious diseases) and using such insight to develop new tools for patient management and therapeutics.
Dr Anene graduated with distinction from University of Bradford, UK with a master’s degree in biomedical sciences. He completed his doctoral research in cardiovascular diseases and molecular biology at University of Bradford.
As a renal physiologist and nutritionist, by training, I have focused heavily on regulation of the kidney by insulin and in altered metabolic states, such as obesity and both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Coming from a productive fellowship at the NIH in Dr. Mark Knepper’s laboratory, I have been funded as a Principal Investigator by the U.S. government via K01, R01, and R21 mechanisms; foundations, e.g., the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, the National Kidney Foundation, as well as by industry.
In the last 10 years, I generated a number of mouse lines with renal-cell-specific knockout of the insulin receptor (Insr). I am now expanding these studies to include knockout of the insulin-like growth factor receptor (Igfr1), the mammalian target of rapamycin (mtor) and microRNA 451, a microRNA with a putative role in diabetic nephropathy. In 2013, I conducted a sabbatical at the NIH to be trained in deep sequencing and transcriptomics and am incorporating these novel approaches in the laboratory. In general, we conduct whole animal studies (mice and rats), measure blood pressure by radiotelemetry, assess metabolic parameters such as glucose tolerance, and determine protein and RNA expression in the kidney using a variety of molecular means.
