Founder / CEO
Inventor / technologist Nathan Sassover’s cross-industry innovations, patented inventions and discoveries extend to diverse technology venues ranging from micro-electronics to health sciences to advanced Internet broadcast network architecture.
With a background that consistently demonstrates awareness of technology-driven opportunities before they are generally recognized, Nathan Sassover's leading edge innovations have created several technology and industry sectors as well as unique market segments.
In the field of life sciences, his discoveries have resulted in medical and therapeutic platforms addressing the neurobiology of aging and disease as well as clinical developments based on molecular cancer genetics and DNA programmable genetic pharmacology.
With a background as an inventor and entrepreneur focusing on leading edge innovation across the spectrum of technology and science, Nathan Sassover has over the past twelve years become actively involved in advancing the development of therapeutic protocols based on molecular neurobiology as applied to age management. Mr. Sassover’s clinical objective was to develop preventive and therapeutic platforms conjoining Neurosystemic Medicine, Longevity Science and Personalized Medicine. He is the Founder and CEO of IntraTherapies Institute, www.intratherapies.com, a company formed to pursue next generation health enhancement programs based on his discoveries over the past decade.
The genesis of Mr. Sassover’s efforts is based on his personal interest in the pathophysiology of age related degenerative disorders. Mr. Sassover’s clinical protocols, identified as the AlphaProgram, are physician managed neuro-metabolic regimens. The AlphaProgram is defined as personalized medicine and comprised of advanced formulations with a primary therapeutic objective of mitigating the progressive aging related cascades and conjunctive effects of neuroendocrine stress and discontinuity in psychoneurobiology, brain biochemistry and its effects on the CNS-central nervous system.
Mr. Sassover’s discoveries are the basis of numerous patents pending with filings in the therapeutic categories of: neurodegenerative inhibitors, neuroendocrine modulators, and epigenetic cancer therapeutics based on DNA programmable genetic pharmacology.
Mr. Sassover’s cross-industry innovations and discoveries originate in the world of music for visual media. He attended the University of Wisconsin and the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Mr. Sassover then launched Motion Picture Music Inc. to provide advanced electronic music production services to film and television production companies in New York and Los Angeles.
During this time, based on his research into electronic music synthesizer sonic programming concepts, he initiated development of a proprietary wireless microelectronic coding technology, which led to his design and invention of the first Vehicle Remote Security System. Mr. Sassover’s encoding/decoding technology and commercial applications led to his being granted two patents, US Patent # 4,383,242 and # 3,987,408 which became the basis for the worldwide multi-billion dollar Vehicle Remote Security industry.
To date, his invention has been adopted as standard or optional equipment by virtually all automobile manufacturers throughout the world, and with the product and technology also dominating the global automotive aftermarket, his Vehicle Remote Security and Control System is considered the second most successful consumer automotive electronic product in history – the first being the car stereo.
His article, “Security is 140,000,000 Codes”- Signal Coding With Subinfinite Variables to Access Control” (SecurityWorld Magazine) was the first published technical paper about his invention and underlying technology, as well as its implications and potential for a broad range of consumer and industrial product applications.
In the media and digital design arena, Mr. Sassover is founder of Inhabit, a design collaborative for production of digital television and web-based programming. This phase of his career originated based on an alliance with the European based company he co-founded in 1984, Parasol Group Ltd. Parasol was engaged in the creation and acquisition of film and television libraries and program licensing to broadcast, cable, and satellite networks and new media venues worldwide. Parasol programme licensees include Fox Television Network, HBO, Cinemax, AMC, Bravo, PBS, Sky TV-UK, Channel 4, M6 France, CanalPlus, CineCinema, ArteFrance, ArteGermany, Premiere, ARD-Germany, Beta Taurus, Sveriges TV VirginVision, and numerous others.
More recently, he is the Founder and CEO of WorldNetCast, www.WorldNetCast.com and WebMobileTV, www.WebMobileTV.com, emerging Internet TV platforms for broadcasting of global online television comprised of geo-centric local/regional/national channels netcasting to over 75 countries worldwide, including emerging mobile Internet video platforms.
