At Wonderland, Savva will be accompanied on a panel hosted by Shayla Love, freelance journalist and ex-Senior Staff Writer, VICE, with Graham Pechenik, Founder & Registered Patent Attorney, Calyx Law, Both& Discovery, Celeste Alvarez, Patent Agent, Calyx Law, Raad Seraj, Founder, Mission Club, and Jeff Zuber, Co-Founder and Partner, Zuber Lawler. The panel will be discussing problems with reliance on patents to fund development of psychedelic medicine and whether viable alternatives exist.
Leaders, scientists, researchers, investors, entrepreneurs, therapists, patients and government officials who are interested in psychedelic medicine will be attending Microdose Wonderland!
Commenting on the upcoming conference, Savva Kerdemelidis says, “Prize-like incentives such as Pay-For-Success contracts or Advance Market Commitments backed by health insurers can be a viable alternative to reliance on patent monopolies for funding psychedelic research, more consistent with open source values and traditional medicine.”

About Crowd Funded Cures
Crowd Funded Cures (CFC) is a social enterprise and Web3 project whose mission is to use crowdfunded Medical Impact NFTs, IP-NFTs and prize-like Pay-For-Success (PFS) contracts to incentivize development of low-cost therapies that lack adequate incentives under the patent system.
CFC is partnered with leading Web3 projects in the Decentralised Science (DeSci) space, including VitaDAO, Molecule, PsyDAO and LabDAO. CFC is crowdfunding a medical prize for open source medicine including off-patent psychedelics to treat depression through the issue of Open Psychedelic Medicine NFTs. It is also working with VitaDAO’s Longevity Prize on a pilot impact market using hypercerts (Web3 impact certificates) for repurposing generic drugs to improve healthy longevity.
CFC is also establishing a Public Good Pharma company with a scalable business model for open source medicine by leveraging cost savings for health insurers and other payors using interventional pharmacoeconomic RCTs that compare a low cost intervention for equivalence or superiority to an expensive patented intervention (e.g., repurposing off-patent drugs such as ketamine to treat depression at $2 a dose, which may be more effective than esketamine at $850 a dose).
