Full-stack Lead Developer for Virtual Clinical Trials 

LEO Innovation Lab is seeking a talented, motivated Full-stack Lead Developer to join The Virtual Clinical Trial team. The team has been created to revolutionize the way clinical research is performed today. Our principal idea with a virtual platform for clinic-less clinical trials is to accommodate the need for disrupting the way clinical trials are conducted in order to meet the increasing demand for personalized medicine with higher patient involvement that we see today in our society. A Virtual Clinical Trial platform would enable any patient, regardless of distance to a hospital, to participate in clinical research bringing more diversity data into the study, which in the very end would bring patients better, safer and more affordable treatment.
