TORTOLA, British Virgin Islands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Juvenescence, a life sciences company developing therapeutics and
technologies to treat diseases of aging and increase human longevity, is
pleased to announce its latest biotech company Souvien Therapeutics (“Souvien”),
creating innovative medicines to address neurodegenerative diseases by
targeting the epigenetic underpinnings of neurodegeneration.

Souvien is founded on the pioneering research of Professor Li-Huei Tsai,
the director of The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at MIT,
and Associate Professor Stephen Haggarty, the director of the Chemical
Neurobiology Laboratory at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General
Hospital, on the epigenetic underpinnings of neurodegeneration.

Professor Tsai said: “We have collected a substantial body of
data implicating a critical epigenetic regulator of cellular aging in
neurodegeneration. We are delighted to establish this new venture with
Juvenescence and their experienced team of proven drug developers.”

“I’m excited to join forces with Juvenescence and their partners as we
develop unprecedented therapies from the bench into the clinic,” said Dr.
Haggarty

Souvien team as collectively we take the first steps in developing
life-changing therapies for patients. Souvien’s programs will benefit
from collaborations with other technologies and personnel that
Juvenescence is building, all to accelerate the development of novel
therapeutics.”
