Natoli Institute for Industrial Pharmacy Research and Development

Natoli Institute for Industrial Pharmacy Research and Development


A UNIVERSITY PARTNERSHIP DEDICATED TO ADVANCING KNOWLEDGE IN THE FIELD OF PHARMACEUTICAL SOLID ORAL DOSAGE FORMULATION AND ENGINEERING

Natoli Engineering has partnered with The Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Long Island University to establish the Natoli Institute of Industrial Pharmacy Research and Development. The Natoli Institute is now open and actively managing projects for customers in the need of data and knowledge that can only be obtained by utilizing a facility like the Natoli Institute.

Dr. Rutesh Dave, Director of the Pharmaceutical Sciences Department and Dr. Charles N. Kettler, Director of Natoli Scientific are co-directors of the activities at the Natoli Institute. They are responsible for evaluating project submissions and working with the customers to define the scope of the work to be done, the resources required for the job and costs to deliver the customers' expectations. They invite you to review this brochure and contact them should you have research and development work that the Natoli Institute could investigate on your behalf.
