MetaboloStasis Therapeutics is a medical research and development company dedicated to the scientific advancement and development of therapeutic solutions for human metabolic diseases. With type 2 diabetes reaching pandemic levels in the U.S., MetaboloStasis Therapeutics distinguishes itself within the BioPharma milieu through equal resource allocation to R&D in Rare Metabolic Diseases, hitherto a neglected patient cohort. Our mission is simple: every life is worth the battle in the war against human disease.

The company was funded a $5,000 Preliminary Research Data award to purchase a number of human immortalized cell lines derived from patients with diagnosed diseases of copper homeostasis. These reagents will provide solid proof-of-concept data regarding the experimental feasibility of the research outlined in the SBIR proposal which was lacking in my previous NIH submission.
