Do you want to live healthier and longer?

We see aging as a reversible epigenetic state and we are developing novel therapies based on cellular reprogramming to solve one of the major challenges in human history.

Who are we?

Ocampo Lab team

We are an international team of ambitious scientists driven to address fundamental questions in aging research with translational applications to human therapies.
