Dr. Pathak also recently obtained patent prosecution on behalf of a start-up pharmaceutical company on its next-generation antibiotic, a novel drug candidate that targets infections due to multi-drug resistant pathogens.
Dr. Pathak holds a Ph.D. in chemistry and has extensive experience with small molecule pharmaceuticals, peptide pharmaceuticals, polypeptide pharmaceuticals, nucleic acid diagnostics, polypeptide biochemistry, structural biology and molecular biology. This is the third time he has appeared on the listing.
