Our Story

Cytel is the largest provider of statistical software and advanced analytics for clinical trial design and execution. For over thirty years, Cytel’s scientific rigor and operational excellence have helped biotech and pharmaceutical companies navigate uncertainty, prove value and unlock the full potential of their data.

Founded in 1987 by Cyrus Mehta and Nitin Patel, research scientists at Harvard University and MIT respectively and collaborators at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, the early mission was to create software that could expedite oncology trials.

At the time of founding groundbreaking therapies were slow to market due to the time it took to conduct small sample statistical analysis. After successfully launching StatXact® and LogXact® for small, skewed and sparse data, Cytel pioneered East®, which remains the industry standard for advanced trial design.

With a continued focus on efficient trial design that bends the cost and time curves, Cytel has championed group sequential, adaptive designs, population enrichment trials, seamless trials, and methods of program and portfolio optimization.

Our consultants advise on both large-scale and small sample designs across therapeutic areas including those that are biomarker-driven and employ Bayesian methods and we unlock real-world observational data and create opportunities for HEOR and market access.

Our expansive FSP team and project-based services employ world-class biometrics expertise to accelerate high-quality deliverables. Our software team continues to produce a package of products that enable these methods to diffuse across the industry, driving up the probability of success. These include East, Compass, StatXactLogXact, ACES (for DMC Services), Enforesys for patient recruitment, and from 2020 Solara – a software platform that synthesizes statistics and strategy to help you achieve your development goals.

A scientific community of passionate and curious individuals, we channel our enthusiasm towards developing evidence-driven results for our clients.

Corporate Social Responsibility

We are proud of the many ways our company makes a difference in the world and we keep our commitment to health and education at the forefront of everything we do.

Our employees drive these initiatives with enthusiasm. As an organization, we believe that “giving back is going forward.”

 

Health & Wellness

Fly High

Fly High is Cytel’s award winning program, which integrates health and education in its mission to support families using educational opportunities to escape the poverty trap. Cytel believes that making the most of educational opportunities means supporting students and families both in schools and outside. 

Cye-Fit Challenge

Cytel’s educational vision promotes engaging program activities that bring computer science and technological education to a wider array of students. In a 21ST century economy, children not given the chance to learn coding at a young age, will face automatic disadvantages in the work place and find it difficult to leverage technology for innovative problem-solving. Cytel aims to counter unequal access to technological and computer science education by encouraging its work force to volunteer in local schools.

Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger

For nearly two decades, Cytel has sent a team to participate in Boston’s annual Walk for Hunger. In a state whose affluence contributes to improved healthcare and educational opportunities for all, it is sometimes easy to forget that there are even more basic needs like food, that are unavailable to nearly 60,000 Mass Bay children. Through its participation in the annual walk, Cytel aims to support a foundational need that can then help children concentrate in classrooms, and flourish in our cities.

Education

School supplies for needy children

As a part of its mission to promote knowledge and encourage success, Cytel believes every child should have a positive start to the school year. By partnering with local boys and girls clubs to provide low income school children with backpacks and school supplies, the Cytel Cambridge and Waltham offices aim to empower them to approach the school year with a sense of enthusiasm for their personal growth. Here’s to giving all kids the resources for long term success!

Drum Circle with Swadhar’s MOHOR Project

The emotional stresses of financial, environmental and health related hardships have led to behavioral issues for many children in the Budhwar-peth Area of Pune. The MOHOR project in Budhwar-peth works with the children of Pune’s sex workers. Cytel partnered with the Swadhar Institute to organize twelve drum circles for children at MOHOR, aged 4 months to 13 years. The process channeled their emotions into a creative group exercise, cultivating greater concentration, teamwork and the ability to follow directions.

Scratch Testing

Cytel’s educational vision promotes engaging program activities that bring computer science and technological education to a wider array of students. In a 21ST century economy, children not given the chance to learn coding at a young age, will face automatic disadvantages in the workplace and find it difficult to leverage technology for innovative problem-solving. Cytel aims to counter unequal access to technological and computer science education by encouraging its work force to volunteer in local schools.
