He has recently pioneered new techniques for Cosmetic Facial Regeneration or enhancement without surgery using the power of regenerative medicine and stem cell technology, as well as developed oral compound programs to enhance heathy function at the cellular level and to maintain regenerative capacity.of both the body cells and stem cells.
A review of his past history documents a long list of amazing facts. Dr. Giampapa was a founding member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine ( The A4M) and he served as the first President of the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine for a number of years where he initiated the examination process for doctors to become board certified.. He is also the first Board Certified anti-aging physician in the world. His credentials, accomplishments and collaborative partnerships with other leading experts are extraordinary and give tremendous credibility as a visionary in the new field of Cellular Aging and Stem Cell Research.
Dr. Giampapa founded the first AntiAging company ,Longevity Institute Internationals int the 90's and establish standardized age management clinics around the world. He is credited for creating the first patented anti aging complex supplement in the world. He was a founding member of Optigenix, Inc. in 1990, which focused on DNA repair sciences, and the development of topical and oral products for the anti-aging market place. With a team of business professionals he was responsible for taking it public in 2006. After this venture Dr Giampapa started the first company focused on Personalized Genetic Health, Suracell Inc., which measured inherited genetic tendencies via SNPs analysis, in order to produce a personalized nutritional regimen to deter age related disease processes and enhance qulality of life. He is currently Associate Clinical Professor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where he remains active in a teaching and research capacity. His research focuses on Stem Cell applications for both detering age related diseases and improving cellular regenerative capacity as well as a new and advanced form of non surgical Cosmetic or "Regenereative Facial Surgery"--The Stem Cell Facelift.tm
He is the author of the first and only medical textbook on Anti-Aging Medicine and Age Management for Medical Doctors. Dr. Giampapa also authored 5 consumer books on age management including; (1) Breaking the Aging Code (Basic Health Publications); (2) The Anti-Aging Solution: 5 Simples Steps to Looking and Feeling Young (Wiley); (3) The Gene Makeover: The 21st Century Anti-Aging Breakthrough (Basic Health Publicaitons); (4) Quantum Longevity and; (5) Pro-Hormone Nutrition: Optimum Aging & Maximum Health Span with Nature's Hormone-Enhancing Nutrients.
He has been a keynote speaker on "Aging" all over the world, including the Vatican Bicentennial key not address, and has spoken at many national University's., including Johns Hopkins, University- Baltimore, N.Y. University-NYC,, Md Anderson,-Houston ,Temple University --Philadelphia, and many others.
He and was the first to develop, clinically utilize and file patents on a computer program to measure aging biomarkers as an aid to direct therapy to improve the aging process in humans. This software was named The BioMarker Matrix Profiler. Dr. Giampapa received the Science & Technology Award from the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine for this achievement. He is also credited with creating the first anti-aging supplement named BioClock , which he patented in 1987. He is past consultant to NASA for the development of the space shuttle robotic arm, which was in part modeled after Dr. Giampapa's sensate bionic arm design and US. patent.
His multiple other US patents are focused on unique cell culture delivery techniques, as well as new drug delivery systems, stem cell reprogramming, stem cell growth factor combinations and surgical instrument designs. He remains a medical consultant to Allergan Medical, Medicis Pharmaceutical Corporation and Sanofi-Aventus, as well as to key supplement companies like Maximim Human Performance Inc, Jeunesse Global, and Fruitura Inc.. He is a member of the Science Advisory Board for stem cell applications in the plastic surgery field and the cellular aging arena for Neostem Inc., an international biopharmaceutical company (Ticker: NBS).
Dr. Giampapa continues to focus on developing his research and IP in the areas of stem cell reprogramming, DNA repair, and telomere maintenance. He has recently founded his latest company ,Life Science Institute--TM as a clinical setting to apply the latest proven effective cellular aging science and therapeutic regimens for physicians and select individuals in the form of highly personalized BioPrograms that include, among other things, comprehensive ongoing biomarker analysis and monitoring as well as bio-insurance in the form of adult stem cell collection and cryogenic storage for future health and regenerative purposes.
He received his M.D. degree from Mt. Sinai Medical School in New York, New York and continued his medical training in General Surgery there. Upon completion of his plastic surgical training, at St Lukes Hospital and Columbia Presbyterian Hospital,in NYC.
