Project Violet

The scientists at Project Violet are creating a new category of drug candidates specifically for rare diseases. These peptide drug candidates are 10-20 times larger than most drugs, which make them ideal for interacting with the proteins that cause most diseases that are currently considered incurable. The team set a goal of reducing the cost of drug discovery by 10-fold and reducing the time from screening to human trials by 5-fold. You can help this team simply by watching the following music video, which underscores the importance of this work. A generous family will donate $1 per view up to $100,000 to create resources for scientists working on various rare diseases.
