About Event

What if we could crowdfund all biomedical research? How can we enable research funding for neglected diseases? How can we fill in the gaps left by federal grants with crypto and blockchains? These are some of the central questions for the growing field of decentralized science and intellectual property non-fungible tokens, being developed at Molecule. Let’s explore answers to these questions together. Join us at the Fifty Years HQ in San Francisco for an evening of food and conversation with a community of scientists, blockchain devs, and biotech VCs.
