Who founded and created InsideTracker?Updated a year ago

InsideTracker can be traced back to the childhood experience of its founder, Dr. Gil Blander. When Gil was a young boy, he lost someone close to him, his aunt. Gil was only 12 at the time, but her passing left a permanent mark.  

"I never thought about death before. I thought everybody lived forever. I was so sad about my aunt and so sad for myself, too. Why couldn't life go on forever? Why did it have to end?"

This event was the spark that led to Gil's lifelong passion and pursuit of the answer to how to live as long as possible and beyond.

Dr. Gil Blander is now internationally recognized for his research in the basic biology of aging and for translating his discoveries into new ways of detecting and preventing age-related conditions. He received a PhD in biology from the Weizmann Institute of Science and completed his postdoctoral fellowship at MIT. He's been featured in CNN Money, The New York Times, Forbes, The Financial Times, and The Boston Globe. 

At InsideTracker, Dr. Blander leads a team of experts in biology, computer science, nutrition, and exercise physiology. He is a regular speaker at industry events and podcasts and is co-host of the popular podcast, Longevity by Design
