CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MYOS RENS Technology, Inc. ("MYOS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MYOS), a bionutrition and biotherapeutics company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of products that improve muscle health and performance, announced today that it has entered into a research agreement with Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey, to engage Rutgers researchers in a program focused on discovering compounds and products for promoting the growth and development of muscle tissue.
The discovery program will be led by Joseph W. Freeman, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers' School of Engineering, who oversees the University's Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration Laboratory ("MoTR").
"We hope this program will result in the discovery of compounds and products that we can potentially develop as therapeutics for improving muscle health and performance and preventing muscle loss in disorders such as sarcopenia and cachexia," said Joseph Mannello, CEO of MYOS.
Dr. Freeman commented, "The Rutgers MoTR team is pleased to have the opportunity to work with MYOS on discovering products that may have the potential to address muscle wasting disorders such as cachexia or to slow the progressive loss of lean muscle mass as a consequence of aging."
"The program undertaken by Dr. Freeman is the first of many programs which MYOS would seek to collaborate with Rutgers over the next several years," commented Mannello. "We believe that working with leading researchers at Rutgers will enable us to take MYOS to the next stage of its growth and development as an emerging research-focused company with the goal of developing next generation products to address muscle loss."
