At Symbiont Bio, our mission is to pioneer innovative solutions for aging and age-related dysfunction, with a special focus on mitochondria, recognized as evolutionary symbionts and central to the aging process.

Symbiont Bio is a spin-out from the globally renowned Buck Institute for Research on Aging, the pioneer in independent research solely dedicated to advancing our understanding of aging and age-related diseases. Our co-founders, eminent scientists and researchers, bring together a cumulative experience spanning over 60 years at the forefront of aging and age-related disease research.

Buck Institute for Research on Aging

Novato’s Buck Institute is the largest independent scientific institute in the Bay Area. The Buck aims to end the threat of age-related diseases for this and future generations by bringing together the most capable and passionate scientists from a broad range of disciplines to identify and impede the ways in which we age. Its goal is to increase human healthspan, or the healthy years of life. Globally recognized as the pioneer and leader in efforts to target aging, the number one risk factor for serious diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, macular degeneration, heart disease, and diabetes, the Buck wants to help people live better longer.

We identified novel compounds that are strong Mitophagy Inducing Compounds (MIC)

These compounds may have a significant role on disease and aging.
