Dr. Fossel has an MD and a PhD in neurobiology from Stanford University where he taught neurobiology and research methods. A clinical professor of medicine, he is considered to be the world foremost expert on telomeres, aging, and age-related disease.

He was editor-in-chief of Rejuvenation Research and the director of the American Aging Association, and as well as the current Editor-in Chief OBM Geriatrics. He has authored more than 100 books, chapters, and articles, including The Telomerase Revolution, which the Wall Street Journal praised as one of the best science books of the year.
