Dr Walker

Founding Editor: Dr Richard F Walker

Dr Richard F Walker has broad experience in the theoretical and practical aspects of aging research derived from key positions in academia and industry. His education includes a BS in pharmacy (Rutgers University), an MS in biochemistry (New Mexico State University) and a PhD in endocrine physiology (Rutgers University). Postdoctoral training in neuroendocrinology and neuropharmacology of aging was received at the Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development, Duke University Medical Center and at the University of California, Berkeley. 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. Consistent with a productive record of research as evidenced by extensive peer-reviewed publications, many federal, state, local grants including those from the NIH (NIA), NSF and DoD, as well as accomplishments in teaching and service, he was twice awarded tenure. 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 coordinated the development of the Society for Applied Research in Aging (SARA), which was devoted to that purpose. He is now the VP of research & development, ProSoma, LLC, and president, Physicians Regulatory & Scientific Services, Inc.

Dr Angehrn

Dr Angehrn

Associate editor (Europe): Fiorenzo Angehrn

Fiorenzo Angehrn received his medical degree from the University of Zurich, Switzerland. Subsequently, he received postgraduate training in general surgery in hospitals at Zurich, Glarus, and Biel-Bienne. His subspecialty training was taken at several outstanding departments of vascular surgery including those at the University of Ulm, Germany, University of Bern, Switzerland, and Baylor University in Dallas, Texas, USA. His scientific interests focus on the clinical values of diagnostic methods including blood tests, scintigraphy, and sonography. Throughout his career, Dr Angehrn has been interested in developing interventions to maintain health and vitality across the life span. Evidence of this interest can be found in some of his works such as his book entitled Venenleiden sind vermeidbar (Venous Disorders Can be Avoided). To promote this interest among his colleagues he founded in 2001 and currently presides over the Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Anti-aging (Swiss Society for Anti-Aging Medicine). In recognition of his work, Dr Angehrn has been an invited speaker at many prestigious anti-aging meetings and has received significant support from public and private sources for his efforts to promote the ethical and professional advancement of longevity medicine. In 2014 he stopped his successful career as vascular surgeon at his own hospital. Since then his activity focuses on the medicinal measures to prevent the process of premature aging and on the treatment of patients with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).
