Dr. Eugenio Luigi Iorio, M.D. Ph.D. is an eclectic researcher with many different field of medicine. According to his research, the identification and the control of oxidative stress, an emerging health risk factor related to the dysregulation of redox systems, may play a relevant role in the prevention and treatment of life-style related disorders. After 15 years of research he founded in 2007 the International Observatory of Oxidative Stress (IOOS), a no-profit scientific network of more than 3,000 researchers living in 35 different Countries, which main goal is to translate into the clinical practice the basic knowledge on free radicals and antioxidants as the ancient modulating mechanism of all living functions. As the President of IOOS Iorio promotes and realises worldwide programs aimed to improve or to maintain the quality of life through personalised interventions on life-style, by using the redoxomics approach that allows to measure the level of oxidative stress even in real time. More recently he integrated the redoxomics with the lipidomics (i. e. the identification and the quantification of fatty acids on plasma membranes). In 2014 he funded the Popular University of Lifestyle Medicine in the heart of Cilento’s region (Southern Italy) i. e. the region were professor Ancel Keys made the first studies on the relationships between Mediterranean diet and health.
