Dr. Rosenzweig-Lipson holds significant expertise in screening strategies, in vivo models, translation, and clinical development strategy with more than three decades of experience developing compounds for psychiatric and neurologic indications in the pharmaceutical industry and in biotech. Her career in big pharma includes American Cyanamid, American Home Products, Wyeth, and Pfizer. Most recently, as head of R&D, Dr. Rosenzweig-Lipson led the clinical development of AgeneBio’s lead asset through Phase 2B trials as well as the company’s preclinical development programs. Dr. Rosenzweig-Lipson earned her BA in the biological basis of behavior from the University of Pennsylvania and her PhD in behavioral neuroscience from Harvard University.

About Life Biosciences

Life Biosciences is a private biotechnology company dedicated to discovering and developing novel therapies to improve the lives of people as they age. The company is focusing on two platforms targeting key mechanisms underlying aging biology: epigenetic reprogramming to restore cellular function to a more youthful state and chaperone-mediated autophagy to reverse the age-related decline in the body’s ability to recycle unwanted proteins. Therapies developed within these platforms have the potential to prevent, treat, and/or reverse multiple aging-related diseases. For more information, please visit
