Before new medical treatments can be administered to the public, they must demonstrate safety & efficacy in a clinical trial. These trials protect consumers from ineffective & dangerous products, but the clinical trial process also presents a tremendous bottleneck in delivering life-saving treatments to patients.

A typical trial involves coordinating between numerous parties & data formats to gather, store, analyse, & audit clinical data. Mistakes & delays are common, & fewer than 10% of trials finish on time. At TrialSpark, we are reimagining the clinical trial process from first principles, & building the technology platform for the trial of the future.

So far, weve worked with treatments for Ebola, Depression, & HIV. Our reach is growing rapidly, & building a world class engineering team is core to achieving our mission.
