We are leapcure

Our Mission

Impactful medical breakthroughs for everyone, with everyone.

Our Vision

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 Values

Empowering the patient voice with a deeper understanding because of our core values.



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.



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.



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.

Difficult Truths

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.



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.

Our Story

Since Leap Day 2016, we’ve partnered with over 10,000 Patient Advocacy Groups across 42 different countries… and counting.

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.

Our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

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. As a team, we save space for honest discussions and do the work needed to identify any blind spots.

Diversifying recruitment at the site level

Supporting access to information in several different languages

Partnering with Patient Advocacy Groups that reach underrepresented communities

Demystifying the patient experience by providing guidance and education at each step
