Empowering researchers to unlock the full potential of science
We want to help you to create meaningful change by allowing you to focus on what really matters - the science. We believe in enabling you to push the boundaries of scientific discovery, collaborate with diverse minds, and drive positive earth and human outcomes.
Molecule enables scientists and researchers to collaborate quickly and efficiently, breaking down geographical boundaries and connecting diverse minds from around the world. This fosters a global community where collective intelligence can be harnessed to revolutionise the world of science.
Molecule facilitates the sharing of scientific knowledge, allowing researchers to unlock the full potential of science. By embracing transparency and open communication, Molecule creates a thriving ecosystem where integrity and accountability are paramount. Researchers can freely exchange information, access valuable data, and contribute to a more equitable and fair scientific community.
Disruption of Traditional Structures
Disruption of Traditional Structures
Molecule disrupts traditional structures and funding models in the scientific community. By breaking down barriers and challenging norms, it enables researchers to explore new avenues of research and pursue innovative ideas. This disruptive approach encourages creativity, encourages out-of-the-box thinking, and empowers scientists to create the unknown.
Molecule empowers scientists and researchers, giving them more control over their work and the development of life sciences. By enabling them to govern the research process, intellectual property and involve patients in decision-making, Molecule ensures that scientific breakthroughs are driven by the needs of the community. This empowerment creates a future where people have control over their own health and where scientific advancements benefit all.
Research proposals Received
Research Proposals Reviewed
Application and Prequalification
Researchers interested in seeking funding from BioDAO submit their research project proposals. These proposals outline the scope, objectives, methodologies, and potential impact of the proposed scientific research. Once the applications are received, a pre-qualification process takes place.
Commercialisation & IP Assessment
This involves assessing whether the research outcomes could lead to valuable intellectual property (IP) that could be commercialised in the future. Projects with strong IP potential are more likely to progress through the process.
Domain experts in the relevant scientific field are engaged to review the projects that have successfully passed the previous stages. Their evaluations are crucial in providing an informed recommendation on whether the project deserves funding. All projects will received the assessment from expert reviewers and could add recommendations to their proposals.
Token holders within the BioDAO community play a vital role in determining which projects receive funding. The domain expert recommendations, along with project summaries, are presented to the community. Token holders then participate in a voting process to decide which projects align best with the community's values, goals, and priorities.
Once the community vote concludes, the selected projects are officially funded. To mark this milestone, an IP-NFT (Intellectual Property Non-Fungible Token) is minted. This IP-NFT includes an assignment agreement between IP Owner and the Sponsor or BioDAO. The funds required for the research are transferred to the respective research lab.
VitaDAO is a community-owned collective dedicated to funding and advancing longevity science research that can improve people's lives. Primarily funds translational R&D. They are particularly interested in ‘moonshots’ – potential revolutionary contributions to science.
AthenaDAO is a decentralized collective to fund women’s reproductive health research & drug discovery. AthenaDAO wants to support underfunded research areas in reproductive health and fund translational or "basic" projects with translational potential.
PsyDAO is a decentralised collective funding research at the intersection of psychedelics and mental health. PsyDAO is now accepting applications for small, needs-based grants that allow you to further your creations in the psychedelic space. All researchers, artists, and creators broadly are welcome to apply, including students.
HairDAO is primarily interested in commercializable hair loss research, from the research’s earliest stages (pre-patent generation) to its latest stages (Phase 3 of clinical trials).
ValleyDAO focuses exclusively on synthetic biology research that can positively impact planetary health and food security. Thus, we don't accept any therapeutics or diagnostics projects at the current moment.
CryoDAO's objective is to invest in cryopreservation research projects that have a high potential to increase the quality and capabilities of cryopreservation.
