Who We Are
We are Lithero…
Lithero is a diverse, Philadelphia-based tech company creating People-Centric Solutions for Life Sciences professionals.
We know Life Sciences. We’ve lived it.
We’ve been in the room at 2 am, eyes red and shoulders slumped, scrambling to get the work done as another deadline falls. We know how it feels to be chained to pen and paper through endless cycles of promotional review, when we could have been out there changing the world.
We are here for you. And we’re going to get you home.
Get Life Science professionals back to saving lives by making promotional compliance review faster, cheaper, and more effective.
