The problem we solve: - Time - Industry research time to create new drugs takes too long (12 years) - Cost - It takes, on average, over $350M to get 1 new drug from the laboratory onto the pharmacy shelf - No easy way to access research participants - currently a bespoke effort
About our solution: A mobile application where contributors can rent out their DNA to medical researchers, make money in the process and help cure diseaseProgress to date:
Currently we are developing the prototype of DNA ID. We've developed an easy workflow for contributors to order a saliva kit to have their DNA sequenced, and a conducive way for them to share that information with the Medical research community.
