Michael Baird Fossel, MD, PhD
Dr. Fossel is president of Telocyte, a biotech firm targeting Alzheimer’s disease, intending to begin FDA-sponsored human trials aimed at curing the underlying disease process using telomerase therapy.
His latest book, The Telomerase Revolution, discusses prospective FDA clinical trials of telomerase therapy as an effective intervention for Alzheimer’s disease. His book was lauded in both The London Times and the Wall Street Journal (as one of the five best science books of 2015). It is now out in 7 languages and 10 global editions.
His academic textbook, Cells, Aging, and Human Disease, published by Oxford University Press, is an extensive look at the field, with well over four thousand references It reviews the fields of telomere biology and cell senescence as they apply to human clinical diseases and aging. Still the only medical textbook on the clinical potential of telomerase, it includes in-depth discussions of Alzheimer’s disease, the progerias, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, immune senescence, skin aging, and cancer, as well as the potential for fundamentally new therapies for these diseases using telomerase therapy.
He received a joint BA and MA in psychology in four years from Wesleyan University, and then won an NSF fellowship. He completed his PhD in Neurobiology in 1978 and his MD (both at Stanford University) in 1981, where he taught neuroanatomy, experimental design, and other courses in the medical school. He began to focus on aging, emphasizing premature aging syndromes, and the experimental testing of aging theories. Dr. Fossel was a Clinical Professor of Medicine at Michigan State University for almost three decades. He frequently teaches courses on the biology of aging .
He was the director of the American Aging Association, the founding editor of Rejuvenation Research, has authored more than 60 articles, chapters, and books, on aging and ethics including those in JAMA (the Journal of the American Medical Association), In Vivo, and other academic journals.

Dr. Timmermans is a licensed naturopathic medical doctor with a passion for connecting with his patients and helping them overcome health concerns as well as optimizing human performance.
This passion drives him to think outside the box when working with patients to regenerate their injured tissues and avoid surgery, resolve chronic metabolic diseases, improve their capacity for elite performance, or improve their overall quality of life.
Dr. Timmermans completed his medical degree at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, where he also completed a residency in integrative pain management and regenerative medicine. In addition to his medical degree and residency, he has received advanced training in regenerative joint injections including prolotherapy, PRP, and autologous stem cell therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement (bHRT), IV nutrient therapy, and peptide therapy. As a naturopathic medical doctor, Dr. Timmermans’ approach to resolving chronic disease and optimizing human performance focuses on finding and treating the root cause, assessing and treating the whole person, and helping the body heal itself.
Dr. Timmermans’ main passion, regenerative injection therapies, stems from his personal experience with a herniated lumbar disc and resulting chronic low back pain following a car accident. He was introduced to, and treated with, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in his 2nd-year of medical school, which completely eliminated the chronic low back pain he was suffering from. It was at this point that Dr. Timmermans’ realized that he needed to share this with the world and help others who had suffered like him. Once he began learning the art of regenerative injections, he knew he found his calling.
