“Following our announcement earlier this year that Physiomics would be expanding into adjacent areas of lifesciences R&D consulting, starting with biostatistics, we are delighted to welcome Venkata to our team. His extensive experience in the field of biostatistics will act as a strong base from which to grow this new segment of our business. We’ll be providing a further update on our expansion into this field later this calendar year.”
