Our platform empowers scientists, accelerates results, and catalyzes breakthroughs.
Lasso exists to get tech working for science – not the other way around.
As research scientists, we dreamed of creating a system that eliminates the headaches of data management and provides a truly delightful user experience.
This is it.
Powerful + intuitive
Imagine a system powerful enough to wrangle vast volumes of multi-modal data, and so intuitive a sixth-grader could master it in 5 minutes.
Packed with customizable and productivity-boosting elements, from role-based permissions and workflows to automated notifications and validations.
Everything about Lasso is designed to make researchers’ lives easier.
Built by users
Our background in designing and building study workflows and managing data – combined with our technical expertise – allow us to actively contribute to improving your research process.
Lasso grew out of LORIS, a system we built at McGill University in 2005. Renowned brain researcher Dr. Alan Evans conceived of LORIS to manage major imaging studies. Leigh MacIntyre joined Alan at McGill in 2012 to oversee the management of other large studies. And in 2021, capitalizing on LORIS’ solid foundation, we built Lasso.
Lasso’s turnkey, web-based platform offers an intuitive user experience, enhanced functionality, and a suite of tools that meet dynamic research needs.
Lasso gets you ready for big data
The data of the future is big – really big. And it’s growing.
Lasso equips researchers with the capacity to tap into and optimize the ever-expanding breadth, depth, and complexity of your data. This is where science is headed, and we’re incredibly excited about it.

How does Lasso make your life easier?
Less time spent on mundane tasks means more time for science.
Here’s how Lasso zaps the headaches from your data management process.
Learn it in 5 minutes (tops)
Forget unwieldy software with long training and onboarding times. Our intuitive, wizard-based interface is a breath of fresh air.
Want to hit the command line instead? No problem – you can also use our CLI query workflow.
Customize and scale to your heart’s (or your study’s) content
A single, flexible platform eliminates the data loss and harmonization issues prevalent when using multiple platforms. Lasso is the only platform you need to handle multiple types of data – and you can add new data types or methodologies as your needs change.
Wrangle and QC staggering amounts of multi-modal data
Lasso streamlines data discovery and lets you manage all your data in one web-based environment. Query easily across multiple studies or sites and get faster results and insights.
Get role-based workflows
In the world of data management software, one size doesn’t fit all. Lasso allows you to create custom dashboards, permissions, and query tools for everyone working on your study.
Visualize progress in real time with one click
Take a deep dive or get a bird’s eye view in minutes that would otherwise take hours. Easily access your most common reports and KPIs so you can quickly spot and address issues.
Manipulate, move, and store data easily
A flexible, agile system lets you do more with your data. Lasso migrates your existing data from spreadsheets, hard drives, and other data stores.
Lighten your cognitive load and focus on what matters most.
