Overall, I am having nearby 10 years of experience in Pharmaceutical Industry after completing my Masters & Ph.D. degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) B.H.U., India with 16 research publication of my research work. All these years I have gained expertise in development of sterile and non-sterile products (Injectable, Solid oral, liquid, soft gel, Dry syrups, Ophthalmic, ointments etc). I also headed the Analytical research and development department and gained expertise in Method development, Validation, analytical testing and cGLP compliance etc. A very sound knowledge of Para IV filling and Product development for U.S. FDA, MHRA and CIS countries. Under my leadership, Company got DSIR approval of New R&D, set up by me. I also provided new technology platforms to the companies i.e. Aqueous based injections, conversion of suspension eye drops to solution form, Preservative free eye drops, Nano-particle based drug delivery systems, OROS based Drug delivery systems, Herbal eye drop, Sustained release suspension, quick and high penetrating topical delivery systems etc. Under my leadership companies got 8 patented technologies on different dosage forms. In addition to above achievements, I also have established R&D setup’s for two companies along with manpower and SOP’s control. I also have filed the dossier of 7 products for approval in CIS countries as per CTD/ ACTD formats. In all, I have developed 15 products for USFDA/ MHRA, 20 products for CIS countries and more than 70 products for domestic markets. Heading Research and Development Centre (NDDS) of Akums Drugs and Pharmaceuticals for last 3.9 years.
