What we stand for

Delivering the best possible healthcare to patients worldwide, requires an efficient research process that drives innovation in healthcare. Currently, 85% of time and money spent on medical research does not contribute to patient health.

At Castor we are creating user friendly technology that solves these issues. Founded by an MD PhD, we understand that researchers want technology to work for them, not against them.  

Our goal

30% of medical research worldwide uses a Castor Research tool


We want to make medical research Faster & Smarter by providing every researcher with user-friendly technology that helps them capture high quality, standardized data, that they can share in a trusted environment. 

Making the world’s research data reusable and machine readable allows us to leverage the power of Artificial Intelligence to help us solve the biggest healthcare challenges.

How we work

We work in a healthy, efficient and challenging environment. We have daily body breaks, a lego table and frequent meditation sessions. 

Working with us also means having time for other important things in life. We love tech and are always finding new productivity hacks to allow us to start the Friday drinks early 😀

Our location

The wonderful city of Amsterdam


Yes, we're biased, but Amsterdam is a great city to work and live in! Small village feel, but lots of stuff going on and plenty to see. Canals, museums, great parties, parks and the rest of Europe is only a plane ride away from European hub Schiphol Airport. Take a look at the Amsterdam Expat Centers top 10 reasons to love Amsterdam

We will sponsor your highly skilled migrant visum, which allows you to enjoy the '30% ruling' that gives you a major tax-break. Check the IN Amsterdam site for more information.
