About the Author

Dr. Pinzone is currently CEO & Medical Director of Amai, an Innovative Medical and Wellness Practice, Inc., and Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Dr. Pinzone completed his medical degree at New York University School of Medicine, followed by internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. He then completed a fellowship in Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University, where he achieved a National Research Service Award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to pursue molecular research on pituitary tumors.

Dr. Pinzone went on to join the faculty of The George Washington University School of Medicine, where he practiced and taught endocrinology and internal medicine and secured an NIH research grant to study the molecular biology of genes that may cause breast cancer, as well as why breast cancer metastasizes to bone. In addition, while on faculty at GW, he also studied business and graduated with a Master of Business Administration with honors.

He then joined the faculty of The Ohio State University College of Medicine where his clinical work focused on patients with diseases of the pituitary. He taught both Internal Medicine and Endocrinology as well as continued his breast cancer research.

Dr. Pinzone was then recruited to Amgen, Inc. where he was Clinical Research Medical Director. He worked in both the Hematology/Oncology and Bone Therapeutic Areas. His work focused on denosumab, an antibody that inactivates RANK ligand, a naturally occurring protein that promotes bone resorption. Denosumab is used to treat patients with bone metastases from cancer as well as those with osteoporosis.

Dr. Pinzone has published multiple scientific papers, mentored many young research students and scientists, and taught medical students and doctors at all levels. He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and a member of Mensa. Dr. Pinzone lives in Southern California with his wife and twochildren.
