Telocyte seeks to cure Alzheimer's differently

Prior therapies have focused on effects, not on causes. They have tried to help symptoms or wished to remove amyloid or tau proteins.

Research shows that cell aging triggers the gradual accumulation of amyloid, as well as the loss of neurons that defines Alzheimer’s.

Telomerase resets the abnormal pattern of gene expression that results in Alzheimer’s disease. We can make a difference. Join us.

Our Mission

Our mission is not to help anyone “live with Alzheimer’s”, but to ensure that all of us can live without Alzheimer’s. Our mission is to cure Alzheimer’s, plain and simple. We intend to save the lives, the minds, and the souls of those who have Alzheimer’s now and to prevent anyone from getting Alzheimer’s in the future.

This is Iris, the mother of our CEO and catalyst for the founding of Telocyte.

We would like to acknowledge the wonderful care and support for Iris
provided by the staff and friends at The Foundation of Lady Katherine Leveson, Temple Balsall, in the UK.

Farewell Iris, you always lead by example, facing adversity with good humour and a resolve to overcome.

As a dedicated nurse, she helped many during her life, her simple request to us was that we should find
a future beyond Alzheimer’s for others.

That is our intention.
