Josef Christensen, PhD


During the latter years of high-school, Josef developed a keen interest in stem cell research, regenerative medicine and gerontology. Intrigued by the miracle-like potential of regenerative medicine, Josef decided to make it his personal mission to bring to market novel therapies to both regenerate and repair our bodies, and to prolong our lifespans. In Apollo, Josef will use his drive and expertise to pursue the launch of pioneering therapies within the longevity-area.

Prior to joining Apollo, Josef was a consultant for McKinsey and Company in Copenhagen, where he focused on R&D-, Corporate- and Commercial strategy in the pharmaceutical sector. His PhD studies at Harvard Stem Cell Institute were focused on switch mechanisms between adult muscle stem cell states and functional heterogeneity within the quiescent adult stem cell pool.
