Team Polyplexus
Polyplexus hosts an online community focused on exploring cross-disciplinary science questions. The platform accelerates access to scientific evidence, hypothesis development, research proposal generation and sponsor engagement. Developed for scientific researchers, research sponsors, and the curious, Polyplexus reinvents the social platform by advancing evidence-based conversations, focusing the discussion through the lens of what we already know - in the  pursuit of what we might discover. An open, public platform, Polyplexus is currently in development with founding sponsor DARPA.
