Travis Wilson is the president and CEO of Stealth Peptides Incorporated, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing a novel class of mitochondria-targeted peptide therapeutics for treatment of ophthalmic and orphan diseases. Stealth Peptides’ lead compound in Phase 2 development, Bendavia, maintains mitochondrial bioenergetics including membrane potential and respiration under pathological conditions. Bendavia has been shown to improve cellular ATP levels in disease, and prevent pathological reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation, thereby improving compromised cardiac, renal and skeletal muscle function.
Travis also serves as a director on several boards for preclinical and clinical stage companies, providing operational and management oversight to a portfolio of companies developing drugs across a broad spectrum of therapeutic focus, including oncology, cardiology and critical care. Travis is a member of the life science investment team at the Morningside Group, a private investment group.
