About Lightship

Who We Are

Lightship has re-invented clinical trial design, making the trial experience more patient-centric. With our technology-led model, we deliver faster and higher quality trials‚Äč. Traditional clinical research models relying on brick and mortar sites to recruit and conduct trials in the hospital or clinic setting, limit patient access to trials. Lightship works with sponsors to assist with protocol development to ensure trials are optimized for the home setting. From patient recruitment through multi-tactic direct marketing channels, the deployment of our sophisticated technology platform, our delivery services of study supplies, medication, and devices, we are consequently improving patient access and experience in clinical trials.

What We Offer

We empower patients to take control of their study participation from our end to end tech platform. This level of engagement allows us to enroll patients into studies at scale much faster than a traditional site (up to 40% in enrollment times) and at an unlimited number.


What We Offer

We deliver results our sponsors expect. Partner with Lightship today and learn how we can reduce trial completion time.
