Our dynamic team brings together a shared passion for innovation and a wide-range of experience from the worlds of high technology and clinical research. While clinical expertise or "rock-star" software development skillz are essential ingredients for leading clinical trials into the future, realizing our vision takes something more. If you look closely at our "Supastars", we think you will notice the diversity of styles as well as a certain... "moxie" ... that the members of our team all share!
Founded in 2009, Mytrus is a California-based clinical innovations technology and services company, built on the idea that modern technologies can enable people to safely and effectively participate in clinical trials without requiring them to live near a study center. The company's proprietary methods can dramatically improve patient recruitment timelines, increase patient retention and reduce overall study costs for drug and device companies. In short, Mytrus is changing the way that clinical trials are conducted and we need additional bright minds with good work ethics that want to be part of something great.
