Coming Soon - "Control ALT, Delete Cancer" Fundraising Campaign

 

Many of you helped us fund critical mitochondrial research via last year's campaign in conjunction with lifespan.io. We are delighted to be working with lifespan.io again to put together a new campaign to benefit our OncoSENS program. Help us tackle some of the most poorly understood and hard-to-treat cancers, and get some cool prizes and gear (t-shirts, tote bags, and more) featuring our new "Control ALT, Delete Cancer" logo.

We're still putting the finishing touches on campaign media and content, but we will be sure to keep you posted via our newsletters and website on official launch dates and further details. Stay tuned!

 

Case Study: Open Access, Faster Cures

 

In a new case study published in February in Taylor & Francis Online, a team led by Rejuvenation Biotechnology 2015 keynote speaker Chas Bountra and SRF-funded researcher David Brindley demonstrate the multiple benefits of an open access model in early-stage drug development. Read the paper (subscription required), entitled "Open Access Could Transform Drug Discovery: A Case Study of JQ1" here.
