NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 2, 2024) — Petauri, a leading purpose-built pharmaceutical services platform, announced today the addition of Nicole Lodowski and Bob Nordyke to lead a team dedicated to evidence generation and value strategy across the product lifecycle, from early pipeline evidence planning through post-launch evidence generation.

Amid escalating challenges in the biopharmaceutical industry, the demand for and complexity of evidence to support access to essential therapies continue to rise. In response to this critical need, Petauri is excited to announce the addition of Nicole Lodowski and Bob Nordyke, who will lead a best-in-class health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) consultancy team, leveraging vast experience across the US and global markets. With an innovative and strategy-forward approach, they will partner with top biopharmaceutical companies to transcend traditional boundaries in evidence generation and drive meaningful patient access and impact. Key offerings include evidence strategy and planning, real-world evidence (RWE) generation and analysis, modeling, simulation, and evidence synthesis.

Nicole Lodowski, Managing Director, brings nearly 15 years of experience in the biopharmaceutical industry, including roles spanning manufacturing and strategic consultancy organizations. Her leadership in building and developing US-based market access and HEOR teams within global consulting organizations has equipped her with a comprehensive understanding of evidence-generation strategy, globally, across diverse functions and stakeholders. Nicole’s partnership with a wide range of senior biopharmaceutical clients across their product’s lifecycles has driven meaningful outcomes to improve patient access to medical innovations. Prior to Petauri, Nicole held leadership positions within market access and HEOR strategic consultancies, including with Avalere Health, PRMA Consulting, and WG Group.

“As the market access and healthcare landscapes rapidly evolve through increasing competition and complexity in the biopharmaceutical industry, the bar for evidence requirements continues to rise. We must drive innovation and apply creative approaches that will support access to much-needed therapies for patients,” said Nicole. “I am thrilled to join the Petauri platform where our team can provide a truly unified approach to evidence generation and strategy across the pipeline to address our clients’ critical unmet needs.”

Bob Nordyke, a veteran leader and expert in health economics in the pharmaceutical industry, joins Petauri as a Senior Advisor. With over 25 years of invaluable experience combining scientific rigor and commercial relevance, Bob specializes in crafting innovative solutions to complex market access challenges. His expertise in translating economic insights into actionable plans for clients ensures that engagements not only drive business objectives but also contribute to shaping improved patient access to life science innovations. Prior to Petauri, Bob served with a number of industry stalwarts, including Amgen, PriceSpective, Precision Value & Health, and the National Pharmaceutical Council, and as a lecturer at the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy and an adjunct professor at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.

“There are increasing economic and political pressures on the industry to demonstrate value and justify prices, not only to commercial plans, but also to policymakers at state and federal levels. Meeting these challenges demands solid evidence at both the product and portfolio level,” said Bob. “I’m excited to join the Petauri team where I’ll contribute to our broad expertise and expand our suite of services in what will be one of the industry’s most valuable resources for evidence generation.”

“Our vision is to not only support all of our business units, but to also be a key entry point for our clients”, said Petauri Chief Strategy Officer, Mridul Malhotra.  “As two highly respected and influential leaders in the area of evidence generation, Nicole and Bob bring a wealth of expertise and vision to the Petauri platform.
