For instance, life science organizations has numerous contracts, forms, and regulatory documentation that needs to be prepared, signed, acted on, and managed. Yet these agreements also need to be validated and compliant. Streamlining this system of agreement and having confidence during ongoing validations are instrumental to accelerating product development and engaging patients in order drive business growth.

Kimberly Sivananthan joined DKMS US in New York City as their Quality Assurance Associate Manager in January of 2017. During her tenure, she has contributed to closing the gap between stem cell donors and life saving transplants by introducing DocuSign’s 21 CFR Part 11 module into the donation workup process.
