Meet the MitoQ Science Expert Panel

Since the creation of MitoQ, research has been at the cornerstone of everything we do as a brand. To further deepen this and utilise the high regard that MitoQ has within the global health research community, we are excited to announce the formation of the MitoQ Science Expert Panel.

cells and mitochondria

The world-renowned panel of scientific experts span from different countries globally, including prestigious institutions such as Cambridge, Harvard, and various fields, including cellular biology, aging, and mitochondrial science.

The MitoQ Global Science Expert Panel can continually draw from cutting-edge research to provide strategic advice for product development, education and innovation, ensuring that we as a brand maintain our leadership and foresight in cellular health research directions.

MitoQ has been at the forefront of cell health for over 10 years, being the only mitochondria-targeted antioxidant on the market. We're currently building out an even bigger portfolio of cell health molecules with the help of our newly created Science Expert Panel. We've asked world-renowned scientists, including the inventor of MitoQ, Mike Murphy, to guide our innovation pipeline. These professors, from universities such as Harvard, Oxford and UCL, are helping us build the next generation of cell health molecules.

Cell support

How to support damaged cells naturally

When a cell is initially disturbed, it tends to swell. Damage that isn’t too chronic or severe can be overcome and, if mitochondrial function is restored, the cell can recover its normal functioning.
