“Aging is the primary driver of many serious diseases. Together with other leading companies in this new and exciting space, we will discuss the challenge and promise of developing drugs that address this enormous unmet clinical need,” said Dr. Fortney. “Our BIO 2022 panel will be a fantastic event of deep interest to pharma, investors, founders, and researchers in the emerging field of longevity-based therapeutics.”

Opportunities for partnership with BioAge

Dr. Fortney and Peng Leong, PhD, MBA, BioAge’s chief business officer (CBO) and Head of Brain Aging, will be available throughout the conference to meet to discuss partnerships and opportunities with interested parties. Attendees can send meeting requests to BioAge via the BIO 2022 partnering system [link] or via the contact information in this release.

“BioAge’s discovery platform, based on analysis of human longevity data, has already yielded multiple clinical assets including our apelin receptor agonist for treatment of muscle aging, as well as novel advanced lead compounds such as our recently announced novel family of NLRP3 inhibitors,” said Dr. Leong. “The platform will continue to reveal promising new targets and therapies to treat diseases of aging, and we look forward to meeting potential partners, collaborators, and investors face to face at this extraordinary conference.”

BIO 2022 is organized by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), the world’s largest advocacy association for the biotech industry. The mission of BIO 2022 is to promote global partnerships, collaboration, and thought leadership in biotechnology. Registration for the conference is open. [link]
