Our true purpose at Castor
Castor is one of the leading platforms for data collection in medical research. We believe standardizing and reusing datasets is key to overcoming the healthcare challenges of the future.
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.
