Young He Ko, PhD

Young He Ko, PhD, discovered 3BP, a highly potent and effective anticancer agent that targets the most common characteristic of cancer cells – their extraordinary ability to metabolize glucose and glutamine. 3BP enters cancer cells quickly and targets the mitochondria, and does not harm most normal cells. Dr. Ko founded KoDiscovery to develop 3BP and bring it to market, and also to develop treatments for people with neurological conditions, injuries/wounds, infection and other conditions. Both her story and her scientific accomplishments are amazing; she is one of the most important researchers in medicine today.
