Franco Cavaleri leads the corporations scientific initiatives and product-related research and development; and provides the scientific data and support for regulatory approval in each country. Franco Cavaleri also leads the corporation Distributors and Ambassadors through weekly mass conference calls (Wednesday Night CSO calls) and a personal blog that teaches lifestyle tips and guides people towards their health-related goals through written posts and video posts located at www.myoceanavenue.com. Through these communications Franco Cavaleri shares the latest findings in his laboratory, the latest research at his fingertips in relation to Medical Challenges, Current Medical Trends, Nutraceutical, Nutritional, Athletic Performance, Obesity and Obesignics, Nutrigenomics and Epigenics findings around the world. He also presents information right from his personal gym on video posts to demonstrate exercise programs; and 6Pack and Trim4Life initiatives to help those starting out on programs to those who are at elite levels.
Cavaleri graduated from the University of British Columbia, where he majored in Nutritional Science and Biochemistry. His postgraduate work was taken out of the education system in 1992 and into private research in a move to maintain commercial control and corporate ownership of the cutting edge nutrient – based pharmacological property. He continues to focus on the latest gene-related and insulin-related nutraceutical research working with human, canine and other models (species-specific nutrigenomics). Franco Cavaleri has been a regular lecturer to pharmacy and other health care students of post secondary institutions introducing the pharmacology and drug interactions of some key nutraceuticals and how they too relate to nutrigenomic activity.
UBC Faculty of Medicine: as of early 2012 this research has been taken back into UBCs Faculty of Medicine at the Brain Research Center where Franco is currently conducting groundbreaking nutraceutical research on the Patent Pending Curcuminoid Fraction he developed. The research is designed to investigate and validate activity related to Inflammatory Cascades involving IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-10, TNF alpha, NF Kappa B, SOCS3 and Auto-inflammation. This activity is rooted in auto-inflammatory and auto-immune disease pathogenesis; and has set the foundation for his globally recognized unique understanding of cellular and athletic performance. This research and the curriculum has taken Franco Cavaleri into the field of NeuroMedicine where he currently specializes.
Franco is a walking testament at 48 years of age (@ 2014) of his health and fitness research!
This research has cycled Franco back to the University that he left in 1993 to pursue a business launch after completing his undergrad degrees. Shortly after having just started into postgraduate work with these natural-sourced but chemically modified Intellectual Properties the direction was changed to bring the research into private industry. After leaving the University in 1993, Franco’s research and development objectives were funded by his own successful corporation until he sold this business to a public health corporation and stayed with the organization as the lead scientific officer. Only recently (Jan 2012) has he returned to the University Research Center with a primary objective to execute this research in a peer-reviewed format coincidentally opening the door to an opportunity to complete the formal PhD program he left behind at UBCs Faculty of Medicine.
PhD Candidate: Franco Cavaleri is currently 2012-2015 completing the final phase of his Doctoral degree in medicine at UBC’s Faculty of Medicine Experimental Medicine Unit. UBC Faculty of Medicine is globally renowned for its standard setting medical program in the Experimental Medicine and clinical medical (MD) programs.
His research focus includes neurodegenerative diseases; inflammatory diseases/syndromes; and molecular medicine. He has proposed a new paradigm for Alzheimer’s disease based on his findings that may prove to set the foundation for a novel disease model and pathology. The discoveries may found the rationale to study new treatment protocols that he is also currently investigating. These new subcellular events have been proposed to be an underlying driver for Alzheimer’s and possibly even Parkinson’s disease; and the now accepted (Cavaleri Paradigm for Alzheimer’s disease) theory has opened the window into an newly accepted alternative pathology, drug targets and novel treatment and preventive strategies.
Franco’s first phase of ground-breaking work in the Medical Faculty has led to a journal paper “Proposed Redefining of the Alzheimer’s Model’ (Cavaleri Paradigm of Alzheimer’s disease) currently published in globally credible medical journal – Elsevier’s Medical Hypothesis.
The years 2012-2013 ended with an averaged academic score of 90% for the year in the UBC Medical Curriculum while serving and meeting his objectives as CSO of Ocean Avenue LLC .
As of August 2014 he is granted PhDc status in the specialization at UBCs Faculty of Medicine after completing all requisite criteria while continuing to advance research on inflammation and neuromedicine at the genomic and transactivation level. As of March 2015 his neuromedical research at the Brain Research Center resulted in a second major medical journal submission and publication on Alzheimer’s disease accessible through public medical library archives. This research continues today in hopes of directly or indirectly changing the prognosis for those afflicted and at risk. Two more medical journal submissions rising out of Franco’s laboratory discoveries are in the preparatory stages of submission for publication review.
Completion of this academic phase will equip Dr. Franco Cavaleri with a BSc from UBC in Human Nutrition and Biochemistry; a degree in Nutraceutical Biochemsitry; a Ph.D. from UBC in Molecular NeuroMedicine; and status as Mr IFBB North America. A perfect cross section of academic fields and athletic experience supporting a unique area of expertise:
Health, Fitness, Performance Enhancement, Obesity Management, Management of Biological Aging, Insulin and Inflammation Research, Cognitive Health and Disease, Disease Pathogenesis and Mitigation in Chronic Inflammatory Diseases and Neurodegnerative Diseases, Molecular Medicine; and the extensive knowledge and experience in experimental models in clinical and nonclinical scientific research.
Franco Cavaleri’s intensive investigation in the context of medical research in UBC Medicine’s allopathic environment on curcuminoid pharmacology is unique. His study of this complex and misunderstood compound in relation to transactivation of transcription factors intimately involved in the expression of inflammatory biochemicals (neuro-inflammatory and -degeneration and other chronic inflammatory diseases) has placed Franco Cavaleri as a forefront global leader in curcumin research and its medical application. He has generated a new understanding of the multifraction drug’s pharmacology and pharmacokinetics; and a new standard for the pharmacology and pharmacokinetics that has finally set the stage for acceptance in allopathic and a better understanding for naturopathic medicine. Related Medical Journal Papers are in review stage.
The Drug Interactions Database of this website displays some of the fruits of this research work.
His efforts in scientific research and development of nutrient-gene interactions have resulted in widespread recognition in the health industry, including Gold, Silver and Bronze Alive Formulation awards in addition to best-seller status for his book, POTENTIAL WITHIN, A Guide to Nutritional Empowerment – a 550 page, 650 reference book dedicated to human health in relation to lifestyle, nutrition and genetics. POTENTIAL WITHIN is sold in book stores, pet stores and health food stores in North America.
YOUR DOGS HEALTH, is a reflection of Franco’s research into pet health, a body of work that paralleled the research founding POTENTIAL WITHIN, a book designed primarily with an objective to treat human health challenges and promote well-being for the human population. YOUR DOGS HEALTH is designed to address canine health and disease in relation to lifestyle and nutrition and showcases the metabolic and genetic differences that result in disease vulnerability. It is sold in book stores, pet stores and health food stores in North America.
