Dr. Meydani is a Professor of Nutrition at Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy and a Senior Scientist and Director of the Vascular Biology Laboratory at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University where he conducts research in the area of dietary antioxidants and oxidative stress in vascular function, aging, and age-related diseases.  Dr. Meydani received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from Tehran University in 1972 and his PhD in Nutrition from Iowa State University in 1982. Dr. Meydani directs studies at the cellular, animal, and human clinical trials levels. Specifically his research has focused on and continues to investigate the molecular mechanisms of dietary antioxidants including vitamins E, C, carotenoids, and polyphenols as well as oxidative stress and vascular function in relation to the development of atherosclerosis and angiogenesis, which play critical roles in the development and progression of cardiovascular disease and tumors. His research is funded by USDA, NIH, and NCI as well as by industry. He has published over 120 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and over 60 reviews and book chapters. In addition, he has been a co-editor of two volumes of proceedings for two landmark meetings of the New York Academy of Sciences. He has been invited to present his research findings at more than 100 national and international, nutrition and aging-oriented conferences. Dr. Meydani has received numerous honors for his contribution to the fields of nutrition and aging. In 1996, he was recognized for Outstanding Achievement among the Tufts University Faculty, and he received the USDA Manuscript of the Year award for 1990 and 1991.  Dr. Meydani is also the recipient of the 1993 Japan National Food Research Institute Award for a Foreign Specialist.  In 1997, he was co-chair and co-organizer of the International Association of Biomedical Gerontology meeting “Toward Prolongation of a Healthy Lifespan” under the auspices of the New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) and in 2003, he was selected to be co-chair and co-organizer of the New York Academy of Sciences conference on “Vitamin E and Health” held in May 2004.  He was selected in 2001 to present the Boyd Orr Lecture at the British Nutrition Society Diamond Jubilee Symposium, University of Sheffield, England. In 2002, he received the Max K. Horwitt Memorial Distinguished Lectureship Award at Saint Louis University in Missouri. Dr. Meydani was the Malcolm Trout Visiting Scholar in 2006 at the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Michigan State University.  He served as President of American Aging Association, 1995-1996. He has also served on the Antioxidant Advisory Panel of the Alliance for Aging Research.  From 1991-2000, he served on the Board of Directors of the American Aging Association and was elected again to this position in 2006 and recognized as a Fellow (FAAA) and FAHA. In 2012 he was also recognized as Fellow of American Society of Nutrition (ASN) and in 2013 he received the McCormic Science Institute Research award from ASN. He served on the Board of Directors of Oxygen Club of California and has served on the board of directors of Zila Nutraceuticals Inc.  He has served on ad-hoc grant review committees for NIA, NCI, NCCAM and USDA.  He is an Associate Editor of AGE and a member of the editorial boards of The Current Nutrition and Food Science, Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism, and a former member of the editorial boards of Journal of Nutrition, Journal of Biogerontology, Journal of Anti-Aging Medicine and Free Radicals in Biology and Medicine
