Veeda CR sees its key attribute as its uncompromising commitment to quality and it will use the recognised expertise of its European personnel to help train its research professionals in India.

Dr Kiran Marthak, a Director of Veeda CR, is delighted to have joined the Veeda CR at this exciting juncture. Dr Marthak is a pioneer of clinical research activities in India and brings to Veeda CR experience of working with pharmaceutical majors such as Novartis, German Remedies, Pfizer, and Ranbaxy.
Dr Marthak said “We have managed to combine the best of a top 5 Early Clinical Development Unit in the UK, with all the advantages of a vibrant new unit on the Indian subcontinent, with both Units operating to exactly the same stringent standards set by international regulatory authorities”
Veeda CR has adopted the image of the Bengal Tiger to exemplify its promise to “Unleash the power of India”. Maurice Cross, a Director of Veeda CR’s said “our marketing team was searching for an icon that represented the power, strength and integrity of Veeda and was also indigenous to the Indian sub continent. Our research gave us a number of interesting alternatives but the dignity and overwhelming presence of the Bengal Tiger fit the bill perfectly. When we saw the photograph it simply swept us away, both our UK and Indian colleagues were
unanimous in their enthusiasm for it. We understand Veeda means “knowledge” and our tiger exudes knowledge and wisdom from every pore. It is a wonderful symbol of both India and Veeda CR.”
