Our Commitment to Research and Development

From the very beginning of 4Life®, we have invested considerable resources into patents, academic associations, and publications. What's more, we have the expertise of our Health Sciences Advisory Board and in-house Research and Development team at our disposal to make sure we stay at the forefront of discovery. Our commitment to research and development in transfer factor science has never been greater, and our team has never been stronger.

Academic associations
The establishment of unique university associations sets 4Life apart in the network marketing industry. Recently, the company formalized an association with the Molecular and Applied Sciences Laboratory (MASL), part of the School of Kinesiology in Auburn University's College of Education. A $100,000 philanthropic gift from 4Life to the Auburn University Foundation will be used to explore immunology and muscle and fat tissue physiology, fund specific laboratory research projects and peer-review findings, and support graduate student funding under the supervision of Dr. Mike Roberts.

Scientific publications
Since joining 4Life, Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Chris Lockwood's academic publications have appeared in the Journal of the International Society of Sport Nutrition; Nutrition & Metabolism; and Applied Physiology, Nutrition & Metabolism. These publications include research on protein metabolism, fat loss, supplementation safety and efficacy, and more.

Experimental research
In 2013, 4Life funded a fully randomized, placebo-controlled, 30-day safety and efficacy study at the University of Missouri to support the launch of 4Life Transfer Factor Renuvo®. The study was performed in the laboratory of renowned experimental biologist Dr. Frank Booth in the Department of Biomedical Sciences, and in collaboration with Auburn University and its Molecular and Applied Sciences Laboratory, directed by Dr. Mike Roberts.

Chief Scientific Officer Chris Lockwood, PhD, CSCS and Senior Director of Quality Control David Vollmer, PhD represent a key part of 4Life's ongoing commitment to research and development.
