CohBar Engages LifeSci Advisors as Investor Relations Partner
Comprehensive Program to Focus on Raising Company’s Visibility Ahead of Potential Value-Creating Milestones
MENLO PARK, Calif., Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CohBar, Inc. (NASDAQ: CWBR), a clinical stage biotechnology company developing mitochondria based therapeutics (MBTs) to treat age-related diseases, today announced that it has engaged LifeSci Advisors LLC ("LifeSci"), a leading New York-based investor relations consultancy serving life science companies, to implement a comprehensive investor outreach program that will include analyst and investor targeting/outreach, non-deal roadshows, corporate communications, and Key Opinion Leader (KOL) events in the field of mitochondria based therapeutics and age-related diseases.
“The decision to engage LifeSci Advisors advances our strategic initiative to expand awareness of CohBar in the investment community, particularly among institutional investors,” said Simon Allen, Chief Executive Officer of CohBar. “The team at LifeSci, with its extensive Wall Street experience, brings a unique set of capabilities that will enable us to present our compelling story to a wide audience of sophisticated prospective investors, both in the U.S. and internationally.”
CohBar is a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on the research and development of mitochondria based therapeutics (MBTs), an emerging class of drugs for the treatment of age-related diseases. MBTs originate from the discovery by CohBar’s founders of a novel group of peptides within the mitochondrial genome which regulate metabolism and cell death, and whose biological activity declines with age. CohBar’s efforts focus on the development of these mitochondrial-derived peptides (MDPs) into clinically relevant MBTs that offer the potential to address a broad range of age-related diseases with underlying metabolic dysfunction, including nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. To date, the company and its founders have discovered more than 100 MDPs. For additional company information, please visit www.cohbar.com.
