About the Company

Calla Lily Clinical Care is an award-winning women’s health company developing products for intravaginal drug delivery, based upon our proprietary Callavid® platform device technology. Initial target indications are in IVF and prevention of preterm birth and miscarriage. We are also exploiting our device’s unique potential to reliably deliver live biotherapeutics (LBPs) to restore a healthy vaginal microbiome - for example to address bacterial vaginosis (BV) which impacts fertility, and where current treatment methods lead to high recurrence, necessitating repeated courses of antibiotics and contributing to the growth of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Further use-cases for our patented technology include effective sample collection to facilitate the next generation of biomarker-based diagnostic tests for endometriosis and a range of other conditions.

Our patented technology has received FDA clearance and was named one of TIME magazine’s Best Inventions of the Year, and our team has been named in the top 10 in Fast Company’s annual list of Most Innovative Companies in the World. We’re a Certified B-Corp balancing people, planet, and profit - and are looking for exceptional, dynamic, proactive people who want to make a difference in women’s health.
