Dr. Sandra Kaufmann began her academic career in the field of cellular biology, earning a Master’s Degree from the University of Connecticut in Tropical Ecology and Plant Physiology.

Presently, she is the Regional Medical Director of Pediatric Anesthesia of South Florida for Envision Health Care and the Chief of Pediatric Anesthesia at the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.

In the realm of Longevity, she is the author and creator of the Kaufmann Protocol, a systematic explanation of why we age on a cellular basis coupled with an organized system to delay the aging process. This theory was introduced in the book The Kaufmann Protocol: Why we Age and How to Stop it which has been recognized by many longevity leaders as the go-to tome for understanding the aging process.

In addition, she has developed the Kaufmann Rating system, a numerical tool that evaluates molecular agents based on available scientific evidence. This process, the only one of its kind,  allows longevity seekers a scientifically-based methodology to determine which longevity protocol best fits their lifestyle and health issues.

Thus, she is well respected in the longevity community for presenting viable and scientifically based aging solutions that are available to everyone. She appears on weekly podcasts around the world, sits on longevity boards, and has spoken at innumerable health and biohacking seminars.
