Sundar brings more than three decades of executive practice in the pharmaceutical field. Prior to joining Biotica, he worked at Abbott Labs and Bayer and numerous Fortune 100 pharma companies. He will be instrumental in Biotica’s development of formulas designed to address a range of ailments, including neuropathic and chronic pain, cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s and esophagitis as well as developing immunological enhancements.
Previously, Sundar successfully brought numerous FDA-approved drugs to market and built collaborative ventures for the manufacturing companies.
