Dr. Nathwani’s most recent position as Executive Vice President, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Digital Officer at Sanofi provides a great framework for the MSAB to inform DRE on strategy, regulatory requirements, research and development, technology and trends in clinical care. The MSAB will also advise on healthcare ecosystem partners for DRE to collaborate with to accelerate treatments and cures.

“It is a privilege to be appointed as the Chairman of the DRE MSAB. At a time when the volume and complexity of scientific data is increasing exponentially, the AI-driven DRE platform provides a state-of-the-art tool which gives healthcare organizations the ability to deconvolute critical scientific data. This agile approach to make rigorous and rapid decisions of real-world data is critical to innovate in this dynamic century of biology,” said Ameet Nathwani, MD. “The MSAB will advise DRE on enhancing the many scientific and healthcare applications of the platform in order to best support a diverse spectrum of partners that will ultimately benefit physicians and patients.”

“With our expanded SaaS platform now including the launch of DOC Analyticswe are that much closer to achieving our mission of democratizing sophisticated analysis of clinical studies and real-world data for researchers,” added Bob Battista, MBA, FRCPH, FRCP Edin. “We have been fortunate to be backed by a committed group of investors and Board members that Joe will now lead as we chart our next stage of growth. We are similarly privileged to have Dr. Nathwani lead our newly established MSAB.
