Turn Biotechnologies closed fundraising round primed to usher the company into its next stage of development.
Platform is based on using mRNA technology to develop novel medicines to combat age-related diseases.
Company licensed epigenetic reprogramming of age (ERATM) technology from Stanford University in Jan 2021.
"It is non-integrative,  – so we avoid the risk of harmful mutations,” said Vittorio Sebastiano, co-founder of Turn Bio.

He emphasized the goal is to impact the health span of people, ameliorate their quality of life, feeling healthy and strong.
Its the first company to demonstrate that epigenetic resetting of aging is possible in human cells.
Results backing the mRNA tech is published in Nature Communications in 2019 led by Sebastiano.
