We deliver end-to-end clinical trials for healthtech & biotech pioneers.

The mission

Help companies make an impact

High-growth companies will be responsible for the next wave of breakthrough treatments, but the clinical trial industry doesn’t move at their pace.

Accelerate the pace of research

It can take up to 15 years for new treatments to reach patients. We want to help patients benefit sooner by accelerating this process.

Make research more patient-centric

New treatments would not be possible without volunteers. Research needs to be designed with patients and participants in mind.

Clinical trials are broken

The cost of bringing new medicines to market has skyrocketed and as a result, patients are missing out on new treatments. Our mission is to fix this; we use software to help innovative companies run faster, more reliable, and patient-friendly clinical trials. We do this because we believe patients deserve better than having to wait decades for new treatments.

Drug Discovery is Becoming More $$$ — Here's Why, And The Startup Fixing It (Lindus Health)

Paying homage to the first clinical trial.

We’re named after James Lind who pioneered the first clinical trial in the 18th century and discovered that oranges and lemons cured scurvy.

Like James, we want to improve health outcomes for all.

We’re a team of clinicians, technologists, and above all – clinical trial participants on a mission to transform healthcare.

ABOUT LINDUS

LEARN MORE

The CRO model is broken. To fix it, we’ve created a new model for running end to end clinical studies, including everything that a traditional clinical research organization does — protocol writing, trial design, patient recruitment, and clinical operations delivery — but without all the headaches, delays, or costs.

Our investors

Our mission is to fix the biggest bottle neck to Improving human health.

You guessed it, that “bottleneck” is the traditional, outdated ways clinical trials are run. Cutting edge therapies can’t get to patients until we collect the data needed to prove they work. We are passionate about using the highest quality scientific methods available to conduct radically faster, more reliable clinical trials.

Our Name

We’re named after James Lind who pioneered the first clinical trial in the 18th century and discovered that oranges and lemons cured scurvy. Like James, we’re pushing the frontiers of clinical research.

We’re a diverse team combining clinicians, scientists, technologists, and — clinical trial participants, all on a mission to improve the clinical research experience and build a better clinical research organization.
