Who is Castor?

Are you ready to change the world of medical research?

At Castor, you can put your expertise to use for the greater good. We are a leading cloud-based clinical data platform, working with some of the world’s largest medical device companies, biopharma, and renowned academic institutes. Our products are used by over 85.000 researchers and millions of patients worldwide.

We simplify the clinical trial process, from recruitment to analysis, with user-friendly, patient-centric technology. Our mission is to bring medical research into the digital age. With our products, we help extend human healthspan: the faster, better and more inclusive medical research is, the longer and healthier lives can be lived around the globe.
