Matt Roe (Verana)

Fresh off $100M round, GV-backed re­al-world da­ta start­up woos Duke re­searcher as CMO

Days ago Ve­r­ana Health closed $100 mil­lion to ex­pand its re­al-world da­ta sys­tem and get ready for “reg­u­la­to­ry-grade.” What’s left un­said was that they’ve al­so found the guy to help them do it.

The San Fran­cis­co start­up has re­cruit­ed Matt Roe from Duke Uni­ver­si­ty to be its chief med­ical of­fi­cer, over­see­ing the it­er­a­tive process of gen­er­at­ing clin­i­cal da­ta and de­riv­ing sci­en­tif­ic in­sight from prospec­tive re­search. His job is al­so to work with oth­er stake­hold­ers such as aca­d­e­m­ic cen­ters and the FDA to map out more use cas­es for re­al-world da­ta.
