Led by Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Xavier Luria, M.D.— former Head of Safety and Efficacy of Medicines at the European Medicines Agency (EMA) — DDR has carved out an impressive growth trajectory working with small to midsized companies largely involved in rare diseases and cancers, among others, and keenly interested in avoiding the implications of a less than ideal regulatory path to registration of their drugs and medical technology products. With its proficiency in European medical regulations in particular, the acquisition builds on the proven expertise of the Veristat team responsible for regulatory insight and action at a time when significant regulatory changes are afoot.

“Dr. Luria has built DDR into a company with a powerful reputation for the design, development and implementation of successful regulatory guidance, encompassing the alignment of multi-regional regulations, and proactive planning to resolve potential regulatory challenges,” stated Patrick Flanagan, Chief Executive Officer at Veristat. “Sponsors recognize that historical regulatory pathways are evolving, and regulatory agencies worldwide are offering greater opportunities for access and partnership. Architecting the ideal approach to optimize the path to a positive regulatory outcome requires collaboration with an experienced regulatory partner. The astute abilities of our team to interact with regulators and support positive results will no doubt serve our clients well.”

With DDR, Veristat will continue to deliver a flexible regulatory service model that provides end-to-end strategy, implementation and oversight of all related activities that ensure compliance with global regulatory requirements and swift approval.

“I am pleased to welcome the exceptional DDR team to the Veristat family here in Barcelona,” stated Montse Barceló Riera, M.D., Vice President, Europe for Veristat. “We are now able to provide our customers with a deeper understanding of the EMA and other key regulators, along with an expanded team fully committed to reducing time to market in important areas such as cell, gene, and RNA therapies.”

“Veristat exemplifies the core values DDR has embraced over the years,” stated Xavier Luria, M.D. “I am delighted to know that the company makes it a top priority to support and empower its people. Veristat is at the forefront of driving bold comprehensive clinical study strategies with a team unafraid of the big thinking required to get novel therapies to patients everywhere— quickly, safely and cost-effectively. On behalf of the entire DDR team, we look forward to supporting Veristat as a pre-eminent clinical research organization for the advancement of novel therapies across Europe, the UK, and worldwide.”
