Todd Ovokaitys, M.D. – Partner & Project Director

DR. Todd

Dr. Todd Ovokaitys completed his initial undergraduate studies at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Two years later he was one of 26 persons in the nation accepted into an accelerated combined undergraduate/medical school program at Johns Hopkins University. This resulted in receiving Phi Beta Kappa recognition and a bachelor’s degree from Johns Hopkins University and his MD degree from Johns Hopkins University Medical School.

He completed his Residency and Chief Medical Residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Internal Medicine, going on to advanced subspecialty training with a Fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine . It was at this point that his interest began to shift toward more humanly compatible modes and methods of healing that might be termed more natural.

During this same period he was also inspired by discoveries about the resonant properties of human and viral molecular structures and how they could be used to inactivate HIV selectively without adversely affecting human cells. In collaboration with the pioneering engineering of physicist Scott Strachan, Dr. Todd has developed a new form of laser technology that will modify or enhance biological activity and chemical reactivity in powerful ways – all by configuring the resonances of specific molecules.

Dr. Todd’s research and development is ongoing on numerous health issues. His vision is to develop highly effective nontoxic alternatives or adjuncts to treatments for the major health issues that face our world. He works with prominent scientists and teams in the U.S. and around the world on work at the forefront of medicine.
