Dr. Bucci is the industry leader in research and development, designing and conducting human clinical studies as well as new ingredient and new product evaluation.

In addition to leading research and development, Dr. Bucci will oversee the First Endurance research board, conduct and publish new clinical trials on endurance athletes, and design new technologies and formulas that are patentable.
Dr. Bucci brings more than thirty-three years of experience to First Endurance. He’s no stranger to success.

“I’ve known Dr. Bucci for twenty-four years now. I’ve always respected him and considered him the foremost authority for sports nutrition,” says Michael Fogarty, CEO at First Endurance.
“While we’ve accomplished some amazing things since starting First Endurance in 2002, we’re going to take things to an entirely different level now that Dr. Bucci’s on board. The new projects we’re working on are truly state-of-the-art and will revolutionize the endurance nutrition category. Prototypes are already being tested by a number of our sponsored athletes and their feedback has been better than we expected.”
“I am excited to jump into sports nutrition at the highest level with First Endurance” says Bucci, who goes on to comment “First Endurance has a tradition of leadership in performance products and I am proud and honored to be part of this team. My background is perfectly suited for this and I’ve got a lot of fresh ideas to help athletes advance and improve. Keep your eye on us – there are so many ways to improve performance beyond carbs and caffeine that are not available on the market. We’re going to change that.”
