Research,

Reimagined

Join the first open research organization built for computational life sciences

intro

LabDAO is a new kind of research organization designed to unlock progress in computational life sciences. 



Whether you’re an independent researcher or university affiliated, we provide the community and tools you need to access funding, find collaborators, and perform research.

We’re building the community-owned ARPA for the internet age.

Research your ideas today

Start leading a research project now, regardless of age or career stage. There are no gatekeepers. You don’t need to wait until you win a big grant or start your own lab.

Own your IP

Easily start a biotech or license your technology. No complex terms or lengthy negotiations with a tech transfer office.

Choose how you create impact

Publish your findings, launch a startup or create an open source tool. Share your research where and when it makes sense. No more publish or perish.

tools

We onboard computational and laboratory applications required for high-impact life science research. By using an open-source peer-to-peer exchange protocol, members can collaborate globally without intermediaries.

community

Our community consists of students, researchers, and engineers across the computational and pre-clinical life sciences. Join the community, learn from peers and form new ideas together.

find talent
projects

Have a project you are working on? Launch a project or apply to join an existing one. Our community can help you with questions ranging from grant opportunities, to cloud computing, to digital entity formation.

Start a Project

Kick off a project in less than 5 minutes with a short description of your research goal. You can then recruit collaborators, apply for grants, and manage grant funding.

If you don’t have an idea you want to pursue right now, you can still contribute to existing projects by joining our community.

Join our Community

Find collaborators, and make new friends. Join over 1000 energetic early-career scientists from universities like Stanford, MIT, University of Cambridge, and ETH Zurich.

Our community is composed of more than scientists. Meet software engineers, machine learning specialists, biotech practitioners, and legal experts.

Access tools and labs

Perform your research with our network of tools and labs. With just a laptop, you can access:

A JupyterHub with pre-loaded environments to run tools for small-molecule docking, RNA-Seq analysis, protein design, etc.

One petabyte of cloud storage and distributed compute infrastructure

Over 3000 contract labs for wet-lab experiments
