Brian M. Delaney

Brian M. Delaney is the president of the Calorie Restriction Society International. He studied artificial intelligence and music at Brown University, receiving his A.B. in 1987. He has been interested in finding human applications for calorie restriction research ever since he first found out about the dramatic research results of energy-restricted diets. He founded a number of Internet discussion groups (including the Usenet group Sci.life-extension), and, in 1994, co-founded, with Roy Walford and several others, the Calorie Restriction Society International, a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation dedicated to supporting CR research and helping people implement the diet. He has been president of the Society since its founding. In 2005 he and Lisa Walford published The Longevity Diet, a book describing the numerous ways the principles of CR can be put into practice. He has taught and lectured extensively on life-extension, as well as on philosophy. He is currently completing his Ph.D. at the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago.
