Jay Olshansky is a professor at University of Illinois at Chicago’s School of Public Health and co-founder and chief scientist at Lapetus Solutions. The focus of his research is on estimating upper limits to human longevity, population aging, forecasts of longevity, slow aging in people (the “longevity dividend”), and the reemergence of communicable diseases.
A board member of the American Federation of Aging Research, Olshansky authored The Quest for Immortality and A Measured Breath of Life and co-edited Aging: The Longevity Dividend. In 2016, he received awards from the Gerontological Society of America and the American Federation for Aging Research and was named one of Next Avenue’s Influencers in Aging. Dr. Olshansky is also listed in Who's Who in Science and Engineering, Who's Who in American Education, Who's Who in Medicine and Healthcare, American Men & Women of Science, and Who's Who in America. He has testified before the trustees of the Social Security Administration where his research has influenced forecasts of the nation's entitlement programs.
During the last twenty-five years, Dr. Olshansky has been working with colleagues in the biological sciences to develop the modern "biodemographic paradigm" of mortality – an effort to understand the biological nature of the survival and dying out processes of living organisms. Dr. Olshansky's work on biodemography has been funded by a Special Emphasis Research Career Award (SERCA) and Independent Scientist Award (ISA) from the National Institute on Aging – awards that were designed to permit him to obtain additional graduate-level training in the fields of evolutionary biology, molecular biology, genetics, epidemiology, population biology, anthropology and statistics.
He is an adviser to U.S. Preventive Medicine; he is a founding member of the HSBC Global Commission on Ageing and Retirement; he is a member of the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on an Aging Society; he was co-chair of the Council on an Ageing Society at the World Economic Forum where he is still active; he is on the Program Advisory Group and Senior Associate at the International Longevity Center (US); he has been invited to lecture on aging throughout the world; and has participated in a number of international debates on the future of human health and longevity.
