“We are very pleased to announce the extension of this ongoing partnership in an important area of medicine that affects so many Americans. Our translational biomarker platform targets the metabolic processes and pathways that play a pathogenic role in disorders such as diabetes,” said Marc Hellerstein, M.D., Ph.D., president, chief science officer and co-founder at KineMed. “This platform has been useful in accelerating advancement and de-risking compounds in Type II diabetes.
