For the first time, we're developing and scaling treatments for rare disorders — and giving patient communities unprecedented control in the process.

Patients and their families are doing extraordinary work to find cures — and we’re here to support them. We believe that by giving patients ownership over the drug development process and access to innovative funding models, we can help them find a cure for every disease.

If you’re low-ego, mission-driven, people-first, and ready to roll up your sleeves, we want to meet you.

Our Team

Alok Tayi, Ph.D.,

Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer

Alok has 15 years of experience as a scientist and 12 as a serial entrepreneur. After completing postdoctoral work at Harvard University with George Whitesides, Alok started two pharma SaaS companies, PreScouter and TetraScience, which employ several hundred people combined and have more than four hundred customers. He also launched and led the life sciences division of Egnyte, a cloud content governance company based in California, and grew the business to a 60-person team and eight-figure run rate.

Alok founded Vibe Bio after his daughter was hospitalized at birth and he learned first-hand that the biggest obstacle to developing treatments isn’t finding potential therapies — it’s funding them. Vibe Bio is helping patients in similar situations overcome that obstacle by scaling the development of treatments for rare disorders sustainably for the first time. He holds a B.S. from Cornell and a Ph.D. from Northwestern, both in Materials Science & Engineering.
