Atropos is a biotech discovery platform to generate a new class of therapeutics, based on their ability to modulate the senescence process, for the potential treatment of aging (with anti-senescence agents) and cancer (with pro-senescence agents). The company will employ a proprietary technology based on recent laboratory advancements in the molecular understanding of the ubiquitious senescence process, a permanent growth arrest that has been associated with aging, but is poorly understood in whole organisms and often confused with temporary cell cycle withdrawal. Atropos technology has the resolution and ability to characterize known and novel drug substances for their senescence effects.
