Reversing the Aging Process with Ira Pastor

Caring For Aging Parents Podcast

Check out more with Dr. Ira Pastor and Bioquark:

http://www.bioquark.com/about-us/

Bioquark, Inc. is a life sciences company developing proprietary combinatorial biologic products for both the regeneration and repair of human organs and tissues, as well as the reversion of a range of chronic degenerative diseases.

The company is focused on merging knowledge from various disciplines, including regenerative biology, evolutionary genomics, and bio-cybernetics to develop a set of novel bio-products capable of directly remodeling diseased, damaged, or aged tissues, creating micro-environments that induce efficient and controllable regeneration and repair.

The company takes a unique approach to mimic the dynamics found during natural reversal of disease, degeneration and aging found throughout the non-human biologic kingdom, as opposed to only affecting the genomic outputs (symptoms) of such conditions, as most marketed pharmaceutical products do today.

Founded in 2007, Bioquark Inc.’s corporate offices are located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with discovery laboratories located in Tampa, Florida.
