INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Thanks to NASA’s pioneering study, space travelers, as well as the billions of us who remain on Planet Earth, are introduced to the wonders of mitochondria. So, what exactly are mitochondria? Mitochondria are generally understood to be the powerhouses of our cells and responsible for converting nutrients into energy. Mitochondria evolved and originated by endosymbiosis when a bacterium was captured by a eukaryotic cell millions of years ago. They brought along their own DNA, 200,000 times smaller than the cell’s DNA and inherited maternally, rather than from both parents. A typical human cell has thousands of them inside its walls, producing over 90% of the energy that the cell needs to function.
Steven B. Engle, Chief Executive Officer, Director, CohBar, Inc. (NASDAQ: CWBR) is a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on the research and development of mitochondria based therapeutics, an emerging class of drugs for the treatment of chronic and age-related diseases.
Mr. Engle joined CohBar as Chief Executive Officer and Director in 2019. From 2011 to 2019, he served as the Chief Executive Officer of Averigon, an advisory firm to the life science industry. From 2007 to 2011, Mr. Engle was Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of XOMA Corporation (NASDAQ: XOMA), a publicly traded biotechnology company developing antibody therapeutics for multiple diseases.
