Sadhale will provide planning and budgeting for operations within the pharmaceutical development area as well as hire, train and manage pharmaceutical development staff.
With 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, Sadhale most recently managed pharmaceuticals and process technology at Patheon Manufacturing Services in Greenville, N.C. There he was responsible for pharmaceutical development of oral solid dosage forms and ensured cGMP compliance for a team of scientists. He holds a doctorate in pharmaceutical sciences from the Medical University of South Carolina.
