Making Science Communication More Efficient

A free, online tool for clinical trial promotion

About Trial Promoter

Trial Promoter automates the generation and distribution of user-friendly messages about clinical trials through social media. We have built the tool to support research institutions that are looking for more efficient ways to promote clinical trials and to respond to the evolving way in which patients, physicians, caregivers, and advocacy groups search for and use health information online including on social media.

Why Clinical Trials? Clinical trials are vital for the progress of medicine. Without volunteers, however, progress in clinical research is not possible. In 2012, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recognized the seriousness of the clinical trial enrollment problem and identified numerous barriers including the lack of awareness among patients. Trial Promoter is designed to address this challenge.
