Dr. Steinman earned his B.S. in chemistry and his master's degree in biochemistry at Michigan State University.
Dr. Steinman began his professional career studying for his doctorate in biophysics at the University of California, Berkeley, under Nobel Prize winner Prof. Melvin Calvin. After co-authoring the book, Biochemical Predestination, on the origin of life on Earth, Dr. Steinman responded to a call from NASA for applicants to the Scientist-Astronaut Program. Though he qualified for the program, he elected to pursue other interests, including the position of Managing Director of a science-based company in Israel. This was followed by a medical degree from the University of Miami and then an office- and hospital-based career in Obstetrics and Gynecology. He subsequently wrote Doctor-to-Doctor: Avoiding financial suicide, the forerunner to the present book.
The author is now Chairman of Biochemistry at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York and Assistant Clinical Professor at Albert Einstein School of Medicine. His research interest is twinning and he has appeared on National Geographic TV, among others, discussing this subject. He has lectured internationally and recently published the book, Womb Mates – A Modern Guide to Fertility and Twinning.
