Abbott establishes nutrition R&D centre in India

MUMBAI/BANGALORE, INDIA: Abbott plans to establish its first nutrition research and development centre in India in collaboration with Syngene, a subsidiary of Biocon. The Abbott Nutrition R&D Centre will focus on the development of science-based, affordable nutrition products for the country and enable the expansion of Abbott’s nutrition product portfolio. Abbott selected Syngene to provide a science-based research and innovation team to work closely with Abbott researchers. More than 50 researchers and scientists will be based at the Abbott Nutrition R&D Centre in India at Biocon Park in Bangalore, which is expected to open in June 2012.

The new R&D centre will focus on the development of nutrition products for maternal and child nutrition and diabetes care. “Health care in India has reached a tipping point as patients seek quality care and products at affordable prices. We have consistently invested in India, and this world-class R&D centre will allow us to leverage local expertise and insights to develop the products we need to successfully expand our portfolio here,” said Rehan Khan, Managing Director, Abbott Nutrition India.
