“Yi” means “medicine” in Chinese and “Viva” means “long live” in Spanish.

Our goal is to pioneer a new paradigm of poly-chemical, multi-targeted medicines to treat complex, aging-associated disease, with a focus on cancer, chronic, and inflammatory diseases.

Our mission is to help patients live healthier lives – by treating the underlying causes of complex diseases and improving their quality of life.
