    About This Project

    Death by snake venom in India, Africa, and South America are substantial. Traditional antidotes are prohibitively expensive ($100/dose) and have side effects. A new peptide-based antidote shows promise in treating certain snake venoms with no side effects. However, this needs further testing in Indian snakes, and needs to be cheaper. With your help, we can test this antidote in four prevalent Indian snakes, and begin designing a low cost bioprocess – targeting a $1/dose treatment.

    Blast off!
