VitaDAO’s mission is to accelerate research and development in the longevity space by focusing on the two stakeholder groups most essential to its mission: patients and researchers. Currently, biopharma and research organizations do not represent these groups well. Biomedical research fundraising is time-consuming and its access limited to select groups of already well-funded organizations. There is a misalignment of incentives that encourages profit maximization by for-profit biopharma companies, and conversely not enough goal-oriented work is done by non-profit research organizations. VitaDAO fixes this by coordinating the actions of for-profits and non-profits. It is VitaDAO’s belief that by empowering more researchers, it can produce the most benefit to patients.
