About Us

Zamplo is a mission-driven social enterprise that was co-founded by Shaneel Pathak based on his lived experience caring for his late wife during her 4-year journey with metastasized NSCLC. Zamplo empowers patients with the knowledge and tools they need to self-monitor their medical condition(s) and gain insights into their health data to live their best possible lives.

Zamplo Research was launched in September 2020, with the Alberta Cancer Foundation's support, to collect real-world data on patient quality of life, drug surveillance and adherence. Zamplo Research connects researchers to patients and caregivers, and is used in clinical studies for remote monitoring of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) data.
