Sierra Sciences, Inc. (SSI) is a biotech research company located in Reno, Nevada. Our mission is to discover a medicine to prevent and/or reverse cellular senescence (the phenomenon where cells lose the ability to divide).
We believe that cellular senescence is an underlying cause of many conditions in cells which are related to the diseases of human aging, including aging itself. SSI was founded in July 1999 by Dr. William Andrews - one of the principal discoverers of the genes of both components of telomerase.
