Eric T. Fossel, Scientific Founder, established Strategic Science & Technologies, LLC. (SST) in 2004. Prior to founding SST, he served as Professor of Radiology and Director of Research in Radiology at Beth Israel Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Fossel determined that the focus of SST would be transdermal delivery of the nitric oxide (NO) precursor, L-Arginine. The role of NO in controlling local blood flow is one of the most important medical discoveries of the 1990s. Three researchers shared the 1998 Nobel Prize for this discovery and NO was declared the molecule of the year that same year by the journal Science. After three years of intense work, Dr. Fossel developed a system for the transdermal delivery of L-Arginine. He filed several patents on this system and its applications. To date, several patents have issued in the US and other countries, while numerous other applications are pending, both in the US and internationally. The transdermal technology has recently been extended beyond L-Arginine to include the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), ibuprofen and sildenafil.

Dr. Fossel obtained his BA, MS and MPhil degrees from Yale University in the field of Chemistry. He obtained his PhD in Chemistry and MTS in Theology from Harvard University. For twenty-five years, from 1970 to 1995, he was a member of the faculty of Harvard Medical School, working in several departments and in several fields. He was made an Established Investigator of the American Heart Association for his work on cardiac metabolism with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He was instrumental in establishing the first human MRI program in the world at Massachusetts General Hospital in the late 1970s. In addition to cardiac metabolism, he has worked on cancer diagnosis and treatment, red blood cell metabolism, and peptide and protein structure, among other topics. Dr. Fossel is the author of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, chapters and monographs, and has presented more than 230 papers at scientific meetings. He has been granted numerous patents in the fields of MRI, and cancer diagnosis and treatment, and the transdermal delivery of APIs.
