Impactful medical breakthroughs for everyone, with everyone.


Leapcure is a global team of thought leaders who elevate patient interactions to progress research for all. We do this with a purposeful, brave culture that deeply connects to each of our personal values.

Through innovative technology and empathetic conversations, our impact is limitless.

Our Core Values

The Leapcure mission has always been centered around advocacy.
We use our unique values to guide this mission in every way.

Difficult Truths

Tell us what you don't want to have to tell us. Do not be afraid of communicating failures. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Don't be afraid to ask for clarity. Only when we communicate challenges clearly, will necessary learnings happen.


This is beyond just a job. It's a cause and a journey. It's also a living, growing experience. At times we all have to work on low complexity challenges that are outside of our personal comfort zones.


Recognize people have different backgrounds, life experiences, roles and perspectives. Be a facilitator of feedback and ideation. Build lasting chemistry with partners. Accept and adapt to realities to get the most out of the collective team.


To continuously drive for results we need to seek understanding from a place of empathy and curiosity. Whether it's patients, community leadership, study teams, sponsors or fellow Leapcure teammates, seeking a better understanding of people's starting points and their "why" illuminates opportunities to make a difference at a human level.


Leapcure is a pursuit of improving the quality of life for many people. It's focal in our lives. Our contribution to advocacy extends beyond the workplace. The speed of our progress can be measured in healthy heartbeats. We don't take speed for granted.

It's time for clinical trials to be designed around you

Since Leap Day 2016, we’ve partnered with over 10,000 Patient Advocacy Groups across 42 different countries… and counting. We’re proud to link arms with support groups and clinical trial sites across the globe that highlight patient stories.

Leapcure goes above and beyond by also interviewing each clinical trial site to provide specific assistance to each location. Our goal is not only to provide the most qualified and highly engaged patients, but also to assist the site with their individual needs.

Patient Success

Our concierge approach improves each patient’s journey, starting with a pre-screening form created to ensure that candidates meet the minimum criteria.

Every single patient is contacted directly by one of our Patient Success Coordinators. We take great pride in ensuring direct communication and a streamline connection between the candidate and the clinical trial site.

Responsible Data Management

Patients shouldn’t have to worry about their privacy being violated. At Leapcure, we believe in protecting sensitive information and have designed our approach to protect patients from having their personal data shared without their consent.

Our commitment to
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our mission has always been to combat medical bias.

For us, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is an essential part of our industry. And we’re excited to see a push for inclusivity within the industry. In our eyes, we believe actions speak louder than words. And for that reason, we’re just as much against performative activism as we are against ignoring injustices in research.

Every day we present solutions and follow through on addressing and improving study design. Some of the ways we do this are:

We’re committed to identifying issues related to inclusivity.

And most of all, we acknowledge we’re always learning. As a team, we save space for honest discussions and do the work needed to identify any blind spots.

Join Our Team

We’re a group of passionate professionals who believe that patients deserve more when joining a clinical trial. Our team is growing!
