Congratulations on this excellent venture… what a great idea!

I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.

Born New Jersey
Nationality United States
Scientific career
Fields Evolutionary Biology, Biological Anthropology, Primatology, Herpetology
Influences Charles Darwin, Jane Goodall

Craig Stanford is Professor of Biological Sciences and Anthropology at the University of Southern California. He is also a Research Associate in the herpetology section of the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum. He is known for his field studies of the behavior, ecology and conservation biology of chimpanzees, mountain gorillas and other tropical animals, and has published more than 140 scientific papers and 17 books on animal behavior, human evolution and wildlife conservation. He is best known for his detailed field study of the predator–prey ecology of chimpanzees and the animals they hunt in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania, and for his long term study of the behavior and ecology of chimpanzees and mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda. He is also on the board of the Turtle Conservancy and is involved in efforts to save critically endangered tortoises and turtles from extinction.

Stanford University. I got heated up in a hot room in 140 degrees. Ran about three miles. Feels like you're going through a run in a desert Normally, it would take a while to get his core temp to back down to normal. What we're doing now is to cool subject off at a much faster rate with a cooling device that we have put on his palm. How you're doing? Our major heat exchange surfaces in the body are, are palms of our hands, the soles of our feet and our face. And the reason is that these skin surfaces are under lane by very special blood vessels. The device that we have, which we call rapid thermal exchange or RTX, imposes a vacuum on that surface. It's about what you can suck through a straw. And then, the cool blood from the heat exchange surface goes back into the core. The skin temperature is much darker so he's cooled down quite rapidly. We've done endurance, treadmill work in the heat. We've done bench press studies, We've done pull up studies. And in all cases, what we can do by extracting heat from one hand is we can dramatically improve performance. What we were able to do is compare the rate of conditioning improvement, whether strength or work capacity with our technique with what's been published on steroids. And our rates are much higher. You definitely can feel the difference. You definitely can work out a little longer. The next time you come in you're feel better, feeling stronger. You can reach your maximum performance capacity without using performance enhancing drugs. For more, please visit us at



Stanford received his BA in anthropology and zoology at Drew University, his MA in anthropology at Rutgers University, and his PhD in anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley in 1990. He taught at the University of Michigan and joined the University of Southern California in 1992. He has received numerous grants from the National Science Foundation, National Geographic Society, Wenner Gren Foundation, Leakey Foundation, among others. He has also received several major teaching and research awards at USC. He lectures widely in the U.S. and abroad.
