In January 2020 she took up the role of Group Manager for the Devices Regulatory Group.

Piarella Peralta holds a Master of Science degree in Social and Organizational Psychology from Leiden University. After losing her father in 2010 (he was only 47 when he passed on), she became involved in the international fight against cancer. Initially, as a volunteer for the Poás8 Foundation, a fundraiser for cancer patients in Costa Rica and since 2014 as a Patient Advocate for Inspire2live. Piarella has taken part in many patient advocacy initiatives, also participating in numerous panels at international conferences and speaking engagements representing the voices of patients and their loved ones. These efforts are all aimed at redirecting the focus in healthcare back to its essence: The patient. In 2020 she joined Diaceutics in driving the Corporate Social Responsibility programs in the early and accurate diagnosis space and to lead the demonstration projects, which are proof of concept projects that speak to the different stakeholders in precision medicine to show that accelerating access to innovative treatments is the best approach for patients, as well as to healthcare systems.
Patrick is currently the Senior Precision Medicine Policy Lead at AstraZeneca and is also their precision medicine representative at the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) precision medicine working group. Patrick has worked for several of the large pharmaceuticals companies over the last 28 years, mainly in their UK marketing company roles. For the many of the last 16 years, his focus has been upon oncology precision medicines, particularly around reimbursement. In the last few years, his focus on precision medicines has been further refined, predominantly around the changing regulatory environment for companion diagnostics and IVDs needed for patient selection for use with precision medicines. Patrick has focused much of the last 2 years upon the impact of the new EU IVD regulation (IVDR) to precision medicines for both AstraZeneca and EFPIA. He holds a degree in Molecular Biology and a MBA, in addition to a post graduate certificate in health economics.
