A peptide that restores telomerase activity, proxime accessit in the best patents competition

A patent obtained by CSIC, and two spanish universities (UAM and UPV) has been distinguished as a proxime accessit in the the madri+d best patents competition. The development, a peptide that can restore the telomerase function, is a good example of new medical research based on cellular therapies. The scientists, Rosario Perona and her team, are co-working with the company Advanced Medical Projects to transform that protein fragment into a drug.
