Walter Pierpaoli MD, PhD
Dr. Walter Pierpaoli is one of the foremost anti-aging researchers in the world, specializing in immunology, endocrinology, neropeptides and aging.
His research findings have had profound implications and contributions in the development of the current Neuroendocrine Theory of Aging, indeed he was a personal friend of the late Dr. Vladimir Dilman,who co-authored “The Neuroendocrine Theory of Aging and Degenerative Disease” and was a highly respected senior member of the Soviet Academy of Sciences.
Dr. Pierpaoli’s findings regarding the use of Melatonin indicate that melatonin uniquely protects the pineal gland. Dr. Pierpaoli believes that the control of the circadian rhythms and the protection of the pineal is of critical importance in anti-aging and indeed rejuvenation therapy. He has published this information, in his current best seller: The Melatonin Miracle. Dr. Pierpaoli is also an award holder for Excellence in Anti-Aging Medicine from the Monte Carlo Antiaging Conference.
- Founded the Stromboli Conference on Aging and Cancer in Italy; 2004
- Director of Biancalana – Masera Foundation for the aged in Ancona Italy.
- Granted the award for Excellence in Anti-Aging Medicine, from the Monte Carlo Antiaging Conference ™
