Technology Manager

Arnab received a PhD in the School of Aero & Astronautics at Purdue University with focus on modeling vapor flows applied to freeze-drying. In 2012, he was awarded the Baxter Young Investigator award for his research during MS and PhD. He is currently Technology Manager at IMA Life North America.


Research Scientist

Dr. Paritosh Pande did his Postdoctoral fellowship at Prof. Michael J. Pikal’s lab at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Connecticut and is currently Research Scientist at IMA Life. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, Master’s degree in Biochemistry from University of Mumbai and Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2012 from University of Connecticut. Paritosh is currently utilizing his protein biochemistry expertise to study the effect of formulation and lyophilization process variations on aggregation and chemical degradation of recombinant and therapeutic proteins formulations.


Associate Scientist

After completing a B.Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad in Mechanical Engineering, Vaibhav graduated from Purdue University with a Master’s degree from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics. His research focused on vapor flow modeling in Lyophilizers with a focus on developing computational methods. In addition to developing experimental protocols and validating numerical methods, he investigated new methods to monitor sublimation rates during freeze drying. His interests include process development, optimization and working on emerging technologies.


Associate Scientist

Dennis completed his B.S and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at the University at Buffalo. His graduate research focused on the processing and visualization of cyber empathic data in design applications. His interests include fluid and heat transfer, mathematical modeling, and design optimization. Currently, he focuses on emerging lyophilization technologies and practices.


Preventative maintenance programs, validation support, control system upgrades, freeze drying cycle development, training, upgrades and refurbishments, are just some of the value-adding services we can offer.
