Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Wonderful news, the MitoMouse project has successfully reached its initial $50k goal and is well on the way towards the first stretch goal! This now means the projecct will launch at the lab and the MitoMouse strain will be created.

The next step for this ambitious project is to actually create progency from the SickMice and MitoMice in order to have an effective model to test the mitochondrial repair approach, which has already been shown to work in cells, in living animals. If successful it would be vindication for mitochondrial repair therapy and move the therapy closer to translation to humans. Here is Dr. Amutha Boominathan, the leader of the MitoMouse Project at the SENS Research Foundation, to tell us a little more about the first stretch goal for the project.
