Mitochondrial Therapy

As the source of cell energy, as well as the initiator of cell apoptosis, the Mitochondria are key to healthy longevity. It is now also known that the Mitochondria are the fundamental stress sensors, as well as signalling mechanism, of the body. Given its DNA vulnerability (no telomere protection), it is vital to keep the Mitochondria thriving else, the body enters a disease/aging process.

I therefore propose a prize to the first successful Mitochondrial therapy that will lead to a demonstrable healthy extension of life.
