Our mission is to improve health equity by expanding access to cancer precision medicine.
Trial Library, Inc. is a venture-backed startup founded in 2022 to address inequities in clinical trial participation. Our technology is integrated with human-led navigation to enable clinical trial discovery for anyone, anywhere. Our vision is to be the leading discovery and recruitment platform for inclusive clinical trials.
We are a diverse team of experts who believe that health equity starts with patient and provider empowerment. We believe that inequities in clinical trial access need to be addressed creatively and intentionally. We believe that inclusive research environments can answer questions that improve health outcomes for all, not just the few who participate in clinical trials. We believe in the power of technology to disseminate high quality health information about clinical trials sustainably. We believe in the power of representation in online health communication.
