In the past few years, Mindset has been investigating open-source platforms for the discovery of medicine. Key questions are:

  • Can we turbo-charge the innovation of medicine through a shared drug discovery platform?
  • If we provide strong financial incentives to big pharmaceutical companies to share their unused patents and molecules, will this unlock hidden value?
  • Could this ultimately lower prices of medicine in support of universal access to affordable medicine?
