Dr. Marc Milstein  

Scientist, Researcher, and Professional Speaker on Health and Wellness


We live in amazing times. New research is constantly providing us the opportunity to understand our brains and bodies better than we ever have before. This information absolutely has the power to help us live healthier, happier lives.

The problem is, in a world where unreliable information flies by in blurbs and sound bites, how do you know what’s real and what’s just hype?

That’s where Dr. Marc Milstein steps in. He specializes in taking the leading research on human health, productivity, and happiness and presenting it in a way that entertains, educates and motivates his audience to live better. His lecture topics range from cutting edge brain science topics such as sleep, memory, learning and emotions to how our DNA and trillions of cells work in concert with our environment to determine our health.

Dr. Milstein specializes in connecting the latest research from multiple science disciplines and integrating this complex information into a clear, accurate picture for physicians, therapists, companies and anyone who is looking to understand the latest medical and science breakthroughs that impact our health and happiness.


Dr. Milstein is a Scientist, Researcher, and Professional Speaker who makes cutting-edge Health and Wellness research approachable, and empowers his audience to apply these vital findings to their work and daily lives.

He earned both his Ph.D. in Biological Chemistry and his Bachelor of Science in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from UCLA. His Doctoral research uncovered the role of a protein called “R1N1”, that suppresses breast cancer. Interestingly R1N1 is also involved in memory, and Dr. Milstein is fascinated by how the brain and body work in concert. Dr. Milstein has conducted research on topics including genetics, cancer biology, neuroscience, and infectious disease and his work has been published in multiple scientific journals. Dr. Milstein received the prestigious California Breast Cancer Research Fellowship Award in recognition of his work.


Dr. Milstein Education is a popular science lecture series currently hosted in venues across Los Angeles. Each week, Dr. Milstein shares “hot-off-the-press” research and actionable wellness tips that boost health, productivity, and happiness. The findings he shares with medical doctors and therapists as part of their continuing education are the same findings he shares with the life-long learners, pro athletes, executives, and other professionals that attend his talks.

Dr. Milstein is frequently invited to deliver his lectures throughout the United States and internationally. Those who aren’t able to attend his talks in person are able to watch his lectures on demand here.

Dr. Milstein recently created a series of science research based wellness videos that are currently used by major corporations for their employees to maximize health and productivity by learning about such topics as “How To Get The Best Night’s Sleep Based On Brain Science.”
