About TrialSpark

The biggest bottleneck in bringing new treatments to patients is the clinical trial. On average, getting a drug through the development process takes nearly a decade and frequently costs $1B+. And the problem is only getting worse.

TrialSpark is a technology company that brings new medical treatments to patients faster. We’re reimagining the clinical trial by introducing a new model, using technology to streamline every aspect of the trial. To fulfill our mission, we partner with pharma, biotech, and digital health companies to run studies faster and more efficiently.
