Dr Walker has held academic positions in Clemson University, Sanders-Brown Research Center on Aging at the University of Kentucky Medical Center, Medical College of Pennsylvania and the University of South Florida College of Medicine.

Dr Walker also held administrative positions at his last institution that included Director of Research Compliance and Director of the Clinical Alliance for Research, Education and Service. While in the pharmaceutical industry, he held a director level position in research and development at SmithKline Beecham, Inc and he currently consults for a number of companies through his own corporation. Dr Walker successfully prepared several investigational new drug applications (IND’s) to the FDA for studying hormone replacement in aging subjects, and with his colleague Dr Barry Bercu, has organized and co-chaired many international symposia on clinical interventions in aging. Consistent with his goal to promote evidence-based approaches to healthy aging, Dr Walker is coordinating development of the Society for Applied Research in Aging (SARA), which is devoted to that purpose.
