Paperpile was founded in 2012 by three computational biologists — Stefan, Greg and Andreas — who share a passion for exceptional software and scientific papers.

Started during their time as active researchers at the European Bioinformatics Institute and MIT, Paperpile is now developed in the US, Canada, and Austria.

The goal of Paperpile is to radically simplify the workflow of collecting, managing and writing papers. At every step, Paperpile aims to provide a "just works" solution that eliminates any unnecessary complexity.
