Longeveron’s Dr Joshua Hare talks frailty, Alzheimer’s and cell therapy clinical trials.

Longeveron is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing cellular therapies for aging-related and life-threatening conditions. Double board-certified cardiologist Dr Joshua Hare co-founded Longeveron as a spin-out from the University of Miami in 2014 and serves as Chairman and Chief Science Officer.

With work ongoing to advance clinical research in Alzheimer’s using a cell therapy approach and to develop a regenerative medicine approach for intervention and treatment of frailty, we sat down with Dr Hare to find out more about Longeveron and its lead investigational product Lomecel-B, which is derived from culture-expanded medicinal signalling cells (also called mesenchymal stromal cells, or MSCs).
