We are Yuzu Labs

A Public Benefit Corporation

Yuzu Labs is a technology company rethinking clinical research together with participants, researchers, and industry. Our mission is to accelerate research and make it a part of everyone's daily life.



Yuzu Labs was founded with the audacious goal to democratize and accelerate human subject research.

People are at the heart of advancing healthcare. Without people to participate in research, no drug, device, or human insight can be developed and proven. However, researchers in academia and industry continually struggle to find and engage participants. We believe current methods are outdated and ineffective; they create distrust, unnecessary barriers, and undermine the what, why, and how of participation.

Participation in research is altruistic, contributing to the greater good. We believe we must be the change we seek in the world, therefore, Yuzu Labs is incorporated as a Public Benefit Corporation. This allows us to harness the power of a private enterprise for public benefit.

At Yuzu Labs, we strive for balance and perfection that inspires. We are nimble, purposeful, and tenacious. Please, feel free to reach out with any ideas or remarks you may have. We’d love to hear from you.
