Kizoo invests in Rejuvenation Startup MoglingBio

MoglingBio

Berlin/Ulm, Germany – MoglingBio, a privately held biotech company, announces today that it has successfully completed its first seed investment round. Sole investor is venture capital firm Kizoo Technology Capital, a rejuvenation biotech investor focused on startups reversing age-related damage on a cellular and molecular level.

MoglingBio is developing new pharmacological approaches to rejuvenate old stem cells of the hematopoietic (blood cell formation) system. Aging causes stem cells to lose their normal structure by increased activity of the protein CDC42. This loss of structure leads to decreased production and quality of blood and immune cells. It can cause leukemia, various blood diseases, and severely weaken the immune system. Normalizing CDC42 activity can restore structure, order and functionality in those aged stem cells. Treated cells can perform their tasks again in a juvenile way, and thereby contribute to both, the rejuvenation of stem cells and the immune system.
