LongeVC Adds Two Longevity and Medical Experts to Advisory Board

22 November 2022 – Riga, Latvia – LongeVC — a venture capital firm investing in visionary biotech and founders — has appointed two new medical professionals to its expert Advisory Board. Vadim Gladyshev, PhD and Tzipi Strauss, MD, MSc join leading biotech and longevity researchers advising on the scientific suitability of portfolio companies for investment by LongeVC.

“Doctors Gladyshev and Strauss are pioneers in their fields,” LongeVC Managing Partner Sergey Jakimov said. “We are incredibly honored to have their aging and cellular rejuvenation expertise on our Advisory Board and look forward to their contributions to our portfolio companies.”

Gladyshev is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of Redox Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital. He leads a broad program on aging, longevity and rejuvenation using computational and experimental approaches. Gladyshev is a National Academy of Sciences member, has won many awards for his work and has published more than 400 scientific articles.

“I am glad to join the LongeVC Advisory Board and contribute to funding projects that will advance our understanding of longevity and aging,” Gladyshev said. “Considerable progress is being made in the field; LongeVC helps to make this possible by supporting early-stage companies.”

Strauss is the Director of the Neonatology Department and NICU at Sheba Medical Center near Tel Aviv, Israel. Her primary research areas include hemostasis and coagulation in preterm infants, and she advises individuals on cell rejuvenation and longevity at the forthcoming academic longevity center at Sheba Medical Center. Strauss holds an MSc in Healthcare Management from Harvard University and an MD from Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.

“LongeVC is uniquely positioned to invest in biotech and longevity companies that other investment bodies would traditionally overlook as being too risky,” Strauss said. “I am eager to join my esteemed colleagues on the LongeVC Advisory Board and share my knowledge to enhance their scientific review process.”
