What We Do

Slope brings collaboration, visibility, traceability, and compliance to your clinical supply chain

Our Purpose

Make clinical trials boring.

Our Story

The concept for Slope sprang from a prior company founded by Rust and Michael Felix that forecast supply and demand for complex e-commerce supply chains. It was immensely unfulfilling work. Everything changed in late 2016 when the two brothers discovered that the supply chains running cutting-edge clinical trials were incredibly antiquated and chaotic. Fast forward to today, and Slope has become the leader in designing data-driven and patient-centric clinical supply chains for some of the most demanding studies on the planet.

Our Values

Slope has five core values that are near and dear to the hearts of everyone on our team. We are truly passionate about the work we do, and it shows.
1Patients are paramount.
2Better, faster, stronger.
3Driven by data.
4Job done, have fun.

Two Brothers, One Vision

Slope helps ClinOps teams make data-driven decisions that accelerate time-to-market for demanding studies.

Do you know the history behind Clinical Trials Day?
Unlike most unusual (seemingly made up) days of the year, Clinical Trials Day has a great deal of history behind it — centuries, actually. Annually on May 20th, Clinical Trials Day honors the legacy of James Lind, a Scottish doctor, who conducted one of the first ever clinical trials in 1747.Lind was a pioneer of naval hygiene in the Royal Navy, often arguing the health benefits of better ventilation aboard ships, improved cleanliness of sailors' bodies, clothing and bedding, and below-deck fumigation. During his time serving on the HMS Salisbury, British seamen were contracting scurvy at an alarming rate after just two months at sea, with some even succumbing to the disease.
