Her role will also include identifying innovative and creative services and solutions to help leverage the Company’s platform DXRX and increase the offering.

Yvanka has a strong track record managing the delivery of real-world insights for evaluation by regulators, payers and clinicians. Prior to joining Diaceutics, Yvanka worked with Kantar Health as a Senior Client Partner, Real World Evidence, where she developed and implemented global business planning strategies and conducted high-quality research.

Peter Keeling, Chief Executive Officer of Diaceutics, said: “Yvanka’s appointment will strengthen Diaceutics’ credentials as the market leader in the development and commercialisation of precision medicine diagnostics. As her 20-plus year career in pharma has been focused primarily on the Research and Development of innovative oncology compounds, Yvanka is firmly aligned with Diaceutics’ goal to bridge the gap between diagnostics and therapeutic decision-making in order to improve testing outcomes for patients and enable better access to the right drug at the right time.”

Yvanka Gilliam, Diaceutics VP of Operations, APAC, said: “I’m delighted to join Diaceutics, a Company that I have long admired for their unwavering commitment to drive better testing and better treatment for patients. I look forward to broadening Diaceutics’ influence in the APAC region and working alongside a team of driven and talented individuals. I’m particularly excited to come on board as the Company’s DXRX – The Diagnostic Network® platform continues to gain traction within the industry, as we help get every patient the treatment they deserve.”
