Consano takes crowd funding to the medical arena and puts the decision into YOUR hands! What type of research would you like to support? From their website:
“Consano is a platform that enables you to donate any amount (small or large!) directly to a medical research project that matters to you. Usually medical research is paid for by large grants from government or other large funding institutions. Consano is part of a new movement to connect individuals directly to specific medical research projects. By harnessing the power of a crowd, we aggregate donations so the public can directly choose and support high quality medical research, pooling their money with others who care about the same health issues.”
