Cellular Health Pioneer, Andrew Salzman MD​

Outdoors on a University campus, stands Dr. Andrew Salzman, an NAD expert and the chief formulator of Youngr NMN
"Salzman's groundbreaking inventions include techniques to combat damage caused by inflammation and oxidative stress to human cells and DNA, as well as tissue damage caused by decreased mitochondrial ATP production."
A physician, inventor, and biomedical entrepreneur with more than 30 years of experience in drug discovery and development, Dr. Andrew Salzman is an alumnus of Harvard Medical School, Yale University, and Columbia University. He has founded many successful ventures, resulting in more than 170 scientific publications and 50 patents.

His invention and development of the original clinical stage PARP-1 inhibitor led to the world’s first clinical treatment for increasing NAD levels and treating cancer caused by BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Genentech licensed his breakthrough technology in revamping human cells for $600M.

Dr. Salzman is renowned for his discoveries in

  • Gastrointestinal microbiota (including gut microbiomes)
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Mechanisms of pro-inflammatory gene expression

Today, we can appreciate the importance of his research in areas that are foundational to human health. We are witnessing millions of patients benefiting from the discoveries and drugs developed by Dr. Salzman and his teams.
