Scientists from Underdog Pharmaceuticals, in conjunction with Professor Jay Jerome of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, have published an article in the journal Redox Biology, covering the role of the toxic biomolecule 7-ketocholesterol, especially in the development of diseases of aging.
Underdog Pharmaceuticals, a key investment of Michael Greve’s rejuvenation biotech VC Kizoo, has closed a $10 million round of capital. Kizoo led the company’s Series Seed II round, which saw participation from both existing and new investors.
Underdog was recently awarded the Innovation Passport under the United Kingdom’s Innovative Licensing and Access Pathway (ILAP). This will enable faster patient access to its groundbreaking treatment for the prevention of heart attacks and stroke. The company expects to begin clinical trials in 2023.
