SENSUKE KONNO, Ph.D. received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from New York Medical College, Valhalla, New York in 1991.

After Dr. Konno completed his postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Medicine, he was appointed for an Assistant Professor of Urology at New York Medical College in 1994. His research focuses on 3 prevalent urological malignancies such as prostate, renal and bladder cancers, and renal disorders/diseases including renal injury, diabetic nephropathy and kidney stones. His work has been presented and well received at numerous domestic and international meetings and also published in a number of the major medical and scientific journals.

About 10 years ago, due to the fact that there were currently no effective therapeutic options for urological cancers available, Dr. Konno started exploring an alternative, non-conventional approach, primarily focusing on specific mushroom extracts with anticancer activity. This study has been collectively described in a book: Maitake Magic, co-authored by Dr. Harry Preuss (Georgetown University, Washington D.C.). His initial work with these mushroom extracts on urological cancers has been extended to other cancers such as breast, lung, brain, liver and stomach cancers, and even to non-human malignancies in dogs and cats. Many Veterinarians use mushroom extracts with their animal patients.

Dr. Konno is currently serving as an Associate Professor and Director of Urology Research at New York Medical College. He is a member of American Urological Association (AUA) and American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) since 1997. He also serves regularly as a moderator for the basic science sessions at the annual AUA meetings.
