"The Science 37 mission to democratize clinical research by bringing trials directly to the patients is not only the right thing to do, but it also has had a clear, measurable impact on sponsors' ability to access a more diverse patient population, accelerate research, and bring new medicines to the market faster," stated David Coman, CEO of Science 37. "We are thrilled to have an incredibly strong, committed network of investors and plan to continue extending our leadership in the decentralized clinical trial market."

The new investment builds upon immense progress from the company's previous round, which afforded global expansion; a unified regional nurse network; a progressive BYOD patient experience; a world-class collaboration workflow; and advanced patient recruitment capability.
