Research mission

Our research and development department counts on extremely well qualified professionals with many years of experience. Every plant has its research and development team dedicated to company-specific issues, but a strict collaboration between the teams allows to share knowledge and channel resources according to project needs.
The chemical synthesis labs are closely supported by dedicated analytical research labs, who develop and validate analytical methods, identify and characterize impurities and perform stability studies.
R&D activities of the group include:

  • development of alternative synthetic routes to circumvent IP and technical barriers
  • development of efficient synthetic processes for new chemical entities
  • screening for novel polymorphs
  • continuous process optimization during product lifecycle
  • tailoring solid-state properties of the API
