Background

TrialSpark is a technology company that brings new medical treatments to patients faster by reimagining the clinical trial process. Today, a clinical trial can cost more than $100M and take 10 years to complete, bottlenecking the development of new treatments for patients.

Our company is using software and technology to streamline all aspects of a clinical trial. By reducing the time and cost it takes to run a clinical trial, we empower more treatments to be ultimately brought to patients.
