Hear from our team: What Citruslabs actually Does

On Monday we sat down with Patrick Renner, the Co-founder and COO of Citruslabs to discuss his role and hopes for the future of clinical trials. Today, we dig into a bit more about what Citruslabs actually does, and where we’re planning to go in the years to come.


The goal of our team is ultimately to advance the speed at which medical research can be done, by providing a comprehensive clinical trial patient recruitment software.


“Our mission is to help researchers to find better treatments for a wide variety of health conditions, faster,” Patrick said. With our patient recruitment services, we provide an easier, more cost-effective way for researchers to recruit educated, prepared patients that are suitable for their trial’s specific needs. Our platform helps to match qualified patients to your trial, all while educating them on the clinical trial process.


Our patient recruitment services have enabled more than 200 research sites to connect with patients across our engaged pool of over 3 million people. Our fully integrated system matches, screens, and enrolls thousands of patients each month.


Now more than ever, the pandemic has demonstrated the importance of timely data that maintains transparency and integrity, which our platform is uniquely equipped to help you achieve.


Our platform begins by helping you to organize and understand your data, starting with simplifying how sites create and share vital reports. We also help you to save time by avoiding manual data entries, as activity reporting and patient insights can be automated and standardized across trials.


Beyond this, we have begun foraying into the realm of virtual CRO’s, which enables us to connect clinical research sites with even greater areas of patient catchment, as well as provides increased data quality, and fewer expenses. For patients, this means increased accessibility and practicality, due to virtual and de-centralized clinical studies.


“We are very excited to continue our transition from a startup to a digital CRO. It is time to bring clinical research into the twenty-first century,” Patrick said.
