Apply for funding

VitaDAO primarily funds translational R&D. We are particularly interested in ‘moonshots’ – potential revolutionary contributions to science. On occasion, we will also fund more ‘basic’ research and other projects in the interests of the LongBio community.

If you’re not sure whether your project is a good fit for VitaDAO funding, you can read our project submission FAQ below, or connect with the VitaDAO Discord community for guidance.
