BioMed Valley Discoveries, Inc., is a for-profit, disease-related research and development organization, whose mission is to address unmet medical needs in areas that are considered too early or too unconventional for traditional biotech and pharmaceutical companies. Operating since 2007, BVD advances its mission with commercial capabilities and resources typically unavailable to academic institutions. As a member of the Stowers Group of Companies, BVD receives its funding principally from an endowment supporting the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, a non-profit 550-person basic biomedical research organization. One hundred percent of the profits from BVD accrue to the benefit of the Stowers Institute.
