   September 29, 2009 - Black Tie International Magazine hosted a luncheon for Dr. Bill Andrews, President & CEO of Sierra Sciences at
 The Roger Smith Hotel, 501 Lexington Avenue in New York City.

Sierra Sciences, LLC is a company devoted to
finding ways to extend our
healthspans and lifespans
beyond the theoretical maximum of 125 years


Scientific research has shown that this theoretical maximum is limited because of the length of our telomeres which shorten as we get older. Our reproductive cells don’t experience this shortening, and thus don’t age, because they contain an enzyme called telomerase that re-lengthens the telomeres as they shorten. Sierra Sciences is searching for pharmaceuticals that will induce the production of telomerase in all our cells.

On November 6th, 2007 Sierra Sciences found its first telomerase inducing chemical; called Sierra1. This chemical is the first ever discovered that activates the telomerase gene without killing the cells. Efforts are presently underway to learn everything possible about Sierra1. But, in addition, Sierra1 has provided Sierra Sciences with the first positive control ever for detection of telomerase gene activity in normal human cells. This has served as a very powerful tool for the development of robust high throughput screening assays for finding additional telomerase inducing chemicals. As such, in the last year Sierra Sciences has discovered an additional 62 chemicals that activate the telomerase gene. This now enables the scientists at Sierra Sciences to design better chemicals with increased potency and specificity. Additional screening for even more chemicals is also underway.
