Prof Edmund Kunji has identified and constituted the functional protein responsible for pyruvate transport across the inner-mitochondrial membrane. Based on this research Apollo and the Prof Kunji have developed and run high throughput screening assays and identified lead matter enabling a small molecule drug discovery progamme. Therapeutic utilities for the this mechanism are broad and span cancer metabolism, metabolic disorders (NASH/diabetes/obesity) and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease.
