The Sprout Story
Christina Jackson and Lina Eliasson established Sprout in 2017 to elevate the role of behaviour science in pharma-sponsored programmes that support patients living with chronic health conditions. Their vision was for industry-seasoned psychologists to lead all projects, applying academic skills and evidence-based theories to understand the patient experience, improve engagement and change unhealthy behaviours. It was bold thinking at the time, and now regarded as a pioneering move within the industry.
In 2019, Sarah Clifford joined and launched Sprout’s Clinical Outcome Assessment (COA) division. It’s a synergistic service line that expands Sprout’s unique ability to engage patients so their voices guide every stage of drug development, from pre-Phase 1 through commercialisation and the real world.
Today, Sprout has a robust scientific team of health psychology and medical sociology PhDs and project managers serving pharma and biotech clients worldwide across disease states.
