VERITAS BIOTECNOLOGIA LTDA., which uses the trade name Veritas Life Sciences (VLS), was created in 2008 on the initiative of four entrepreneurial scientists with the aim of returning to Brazil after years of professional experience in leading institutions and companies in biomedical research and biotechnology in the United States. All members of the Veritas founding team have a postdoctoral degree in science and/or business experience in the United States (USA). More than 30 years of experience accumulated by the partners in research, development and innovation (R&D&I) of post genomic technological platforms, applied to the study of diseases and diagnosis, resulted in multiple publications, patent registrations and commercial product launches .


In June 2008, Veritas had its business plan selected for admission as an incubated company at the SUPERA Incubator (USP – Ribeirão Preto). Its business plan was even selected for presentation at the BioVenture Forum organized by FINEP and the Biominas Foundation within the Biolatina 2008 calendar. notably through the approval and successful implementation of several innovative projects supported by development agencies, such as FAPESP, CNPQ (RHAE) and FINEP. Currently, Veritas has R&D projects at an advanced stage (pre-clinical) and being successfully carried out, a well-trained and motivated team and is about to deposit two patents.


In addition, our biotechnology services business was established and Veritas is already considered a reference in advanced protein analysis in the country due to the quality and agility in delivering results. We were recently selected to integrate the Technological Park of Ribeirão Preto, which made our expansion possible. In this current scenario, Veritas is actively seeking private partners.


Veritas actively seeks:

  • Investors and strategic partners who have an R&D background, who understand the development cycle of a biotechnology product and who value collaboration as a strategic path to growth,

  •  Professionals mactivated to join our scientific team. If you are looking for new career opportunities in an innovation-driven environment and want to help create new solutions that protect people and the environment, please send your CV for our confidential consideration.
