Global pharma organizations back Turn Biotechnologies to advance its cell rejuvenation program

(Adnkronos) – Daewoong Pharmaceutical, HanAll Biopharma join Astellas Venture Management and other VCs in oversubscribed funding round to accelerate Turn Bio’s preclinical advances in multiple therapeutic areas 

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Turn Biotechnologies, a cell rejuvenation company developing novel mRNA medicines to cure untreatable, age-related conditions, today announced that it closed an oversubscribed fundraising round to support the next stage of its development. 

Investments from two international pharmaceutical organizations and a venture capital group associated with a third underscored widespread interest in Turn Bio’s unique cell rejuvenation therapy, which is built on the company’s proprietary ERA™ platform. 

International pharmaceutical industry backing came from three groups: 

“The attention and support Turn Bio is receiving from organizations around the world shows the confidence companies have in our ability to utilize our proprietary technology platforms to develop cures for now-untreatable conditions that afflict millions of people globally,” said CEO Anja Krammer. “Turn Bio is closer to proving that cell rejuvenation will transform how medicine treats human disease – and ultimately extends the human healthspan.” 

An executive from HanAll acknowledged the importance of Turn Bio’s work. 

“Many age-related diseases have long been significant areas of unmet patient need,” said Dr. Almira Chabi, chief medical officer and chief development officer at HanAll Pharmaceutical International, a U.S. organization HanAll created to strengthen its R&D. “Turn Bio’s innovative platform may bring a pivotal transformation to a wide array of therapeutic areas. HanAll is committing support and investment to help realize the full potential of this pioneering technology as Turn Bio advances to a new phase of growth.” 

The round also attracted investment from LongeVC, which is focused on accelerating companies’ development in the longevity space; ThreeD Capital, which invests in disruptive technologies, and Vitality Healthspan Foundation. Existing investors, Methuselah Fund, Formic Ventures and Shanda Group, increased their investments this round.
