Headed by Dr. Lindsay Wu and Dr. Hayden Homer and with headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts and Sydney, Australia, Jumpstart Fertility aims to improve the condition of egg cells and restore fertility.
Scientists at Jumpstart believe they have uncovered why female reproduction declines with age and how to correct this. They have discovered why the separation of chromosomes in egg cells can go awry leading to spontaneous miscarriage or the increased incidence of children born with Down’s syndrome. Jumpstart is developing a drug that restores egg cell quality and has the potential to restore fertility in older women or who have experienced premature infertility. The therapies they develop to this end may have other benefits.
Jumpstart researchers published a study in February 2020 entitled “NAD+ Repletion Rescues Female Fertility during Reproductive Aging“.
Jumpstart Fertility is a daughter company of Life Biosciences, which owns multiple rejuvenation biotechnology companies each focusing on a different hallmark of aging.
