Our Mission

Help innovative 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.

Our Story

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.

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.

Our Team

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