About Satellos Bioscience Inc.
Satellos is a biotechnology company dedicated to developing lifechanging medicines that have the potential to correct a root cause of degenerative muscle disorders. Satellos was established in 2018 to translate the groundbreaking discoveries of its scientific founder, Dr. Michael Rudnicki, a thought leader who discovered and has shown how muscle stem cells regulate muscle repair and growth throughout life. Satellos’ lead program is focused on developing an oral therapeutic drug (i.e., a pill) to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy where we have shown that the body’s muscle stem cells don’t produce enough muscle cell progenitors to keep up with the continuous damage caused by the disorder. Our drug development work offers hope for people living with Duchenne that a drug may have the potential to reset the body’s innate ability to repair and grow muscle. To expand our programs, Satellos has created a proprietary discovery platform, MyoReGenXTM, to identify other muscle disorders where deficits in muscle stem cell regeneration can be addressed with drug treatment. For more information about Satellos’ regenerative therapeutic discovery platform, development programs, or licensing opportunities please contact Ryan Mitchell, PhD, Director – Business Development at [email protected] or visit Satellos.com.
