Dr. Travison is an internationally recognized expert on sex steroids epidemiology and its relation to male aging. With colleagues he developed the first assessment of secular trends in sex steroid levels in men in North America; the first assessment of the rates of progression and natural remission of symptomatic androgen deficiency in male aging; developed one of the first anchor-based estimates of clinically meaningful change attributable to androgen supplementation in frail men; and developed the first multinational reference range for circulating androgen levels in older men obtained by tandem mass spectrometry, the current research standard.
