Who is Castor?
Castor is one of the fastest growing healthtech startups. Our mission is to bring medical research into the digital age. Why? Because medical research is still largely run using free-text, paper and spreadsheets. By enabling our users to capture high quality data and making it machine readable, we are fundamentally changing the broken evidence based medicine process. You’ve found yourself a company with a true purpose. Learn more at castoredc.com and on our Life at Castor instagram channel.
How is Castor supporting the Coronavirus crisis?
Castor has joined the global fight against the Coronavirus by making our research data capture system available for free for all COVID-19 research projects. As of May 01st, Castor is supporting more than 180 COVID-19 studies across the world.
Castor’s MyConsent team
Patients play a pivotal role in medical research, spending time and energy to contribute to the advancement of science. We started MyConsent as a privacy-preserving electronic (re-)consent application to stimulate data re-use.
With the coronavirus crisis affecting research projects worldwide, we realized that digital interaction with research participants is a key ingredient for the continuity of medical research in a post-COVID era.
For this reason, we are expanding into a full-fledged eConsent and patient engagement platform, while maintaining our vision to provide a secure and privacy-preserving experience.
