Osman Kibar schaffte es auf das Forbes Cover und wird als größter Game Changer in der Welt angesehen. Sein Unternehmen ist momentan das wertvollste Biotechnologie Unternemhen auf der Welt mit einem Startwert von rund 13 Milliarden Dollar. Es wird damit gerechnet, dass er seinen Vermögenswert dieses Jahr verfünffachen wird. Wer unter Alopezie leidet, der sollte diesem türkischen Genie sein Dank aussprechen.

Forbes magazine has put the story of a Turkey-born biotech billionaire, Osman Kibar, who has been named the inventor of the “God Pill,” along with his company Samumed on its latest cover as one of the top 30 global game changers in the world.

“Samumed, the San Diego firm he [Kibar] has been stealthily building for a decade, is the most valuable biotechnology startup on the planet,” said the Forbes story.

Samumed, which is expected to soon be worth some $12 billion, is finding it easy to raise huge amounts of cash because it believes it has invented medicines that can reverse aging, according to the story. The company’s first drugs are targeted at specific organ systems. One aims to regrow hair for bald men. The same drug may also turn gray hair back to its original color, and a cosmetic version could erase wrinkles. A second drug seeks to regenerate cartilage in arthritic knees. Additional medicines in early human studies aim to repair degenerated discs in the spine, remove scarring in the lungs and treat cancer. After that, Samumed will attempt to cure a leading cause of blindness and go after Alzheimer’s, according to the Forbes story.

“The firm’s focus, disease by disease, symptom by symptom, is to make the cells of aging people regenerate as powerfully as those of a developing fetus,” it added.

Kibar, the founder and CEO of Samumed, was born in the Aegean province of İzmir and took his secondary education in Robert College, an Istanbul-based school that drew from among the top 0.2 percent of students who took Turkey’s national standardized test at age 11. Kibar, the grandson of a former İzmir mayor, later emigrated from Turkey to the U.S. for college. He took his graduate degrees in the U.S.
