About Dr. Lester Packer
Dr. Lester Packer, is the world’s foremost antioxidant research scientist.

He is a senior scientist at the prestigious Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and Head of the Packer Lab at the University of California, where he has been a professor for 35 years.

Dr. Packer is the executive editor of Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, and serves on the editorial advisory boards of Free Radical Biology and Medicine, The Journal of Applied Nutrition, and The Journal of Optimal Nutrition. He is a member of eight professional societies and is President of the International Society for Free Radical Research, and Vice President of UNESCO’s Global Network of Molecular and Cell Biology.

Professional Publications

Dr. Packer has published over 700 scientific papers and 70 books on every aspect of antioxidants and health, including the standard references "Vitamin E in Health and Disease", "Vitamin C in Health and Disease", "The Handbook of Natural Antioxidants" and "Understanding the Process of Aging:The Roles of Mitochondria, Free Radicals, and Antioxidants"

The International Bibliographic Information on Dietary Supplements (IBIDS) is produced by the Office of Dietary Supplements at the National Institutes of Health to assist the public, health care providers, and researchers in locating credible, scientific literature on dietary supplements.

Several hundred citations of the Packer Lab’s work on the antioxidant network and gene regulation are in the peer reviewed section of IBIDS database. They include:

Publications for a General Audience
Since his widely reported presentation on the antioxidant network to The United Nations and World Health Organization First Joint Conference on Healthy Aging, Dr. Packer has sought to address a more general audience.

The Antioxidant Miracle, published in 1999 by John Wiley & Sons, is his first book for non-scientists.

When Scientific American needed a widely recognized authority to write an article on vitamin E for their inaugural Scientific American Science and Medicine issue, they invited Dr. Packer. Recently he has been interviewed by Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, and ABC News.

Lester Packer has an unmatched scientific record on antioxidants, now considered key components in achieving healthy aging and extending human life.
