Veeva’s Dan Crawford Elected Chair of CDISC Advisory Council

AUSTIN, TX and PLEASANTON, CA — Dec. 14, 2022 Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) and CDISC are pleased to announce that Dan Crawford, Veeva Clinical Database (CDB) principal consultant, has been elected chair of the CDISC Advisory Council (CAC) . The CAC comprises representatives from CDISC platinum members who play an important role in shaping CDISC’s development and direction, providing the CDISC executive team with recommendations that support CDISC goals.

A long-time CDISC volunteer, Dan is an expert in CDISC standards and has been instrumental in developing CDISC’s data collection standard, CDASH. As CAC chair, he will work closely with clinical leaders from top 20 pharma, emerging biotechs, clinical research organizations (CROs), and technology providers. Dan will also serve as an advisor to the CDISC board of directors to represent the views, perspectives, and interests of the CAC.

“I’m honored to be elected chair of the CDISC Advisory Council and serve as the voice for its representatives,” said Crawford. “Veeva is on the frontlines working with customers to transform data collection and cleaning to help data managers spend more time on valuable scientific analysis. I hope to bring my experiences developing and implementing CDISC standards forward to advance the industry and communicate the benefits of data standards.”

By adopting CDISC standards, life sciences companies can set up and close trials and deliver standardized data to regulatory agencies faster. This can accelerate study execution and speed­ access to new medicines and treatments.

“The CAC is essential in ensuring CDISC standards continue to drive operational efficiencies within the organizations that use them to expedite the regulatory review process and reduce time to market,” said David A. Evans, president and CEO of CDISC. “We’re thrilled to welcome Dan and his expertise to the role of CAC Chair.”
