Purdue University has signed a memorandum of understanding with Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Limited, Hyderabad, India, to strengthen pharmaceutical research and development. The intent is to forge a strong strategic partnership in a range of research areas and novel technologies. Areas of planned collaborative research and education include targeted drug delivery, manufacturing technology, scale-up of pharmaceutical operations, process engineering, and research and development methodologies and technology. The collaboration will include student engagement and faculty exchanges and may include a site at Purdue Research Park.
“Purdue has tremendous strength in pharmaceutical drug discovery and development research, but we need additional partners to help translate our discoveries through to the delivery of a medicine or technology,” Suresh Garimella, Purdue executive vice president for research and partnerships, said. “Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories is a global pharmaceutical company that shares our mission to accelerate the rate at which new, advanced treatments make it to the millions of patients in need of relief. This partnership combines strengths that could lead to world-changing research.”
