Sendurai Mani: Visionary Leadership in Action

Sendurai Mani, Dean’s Chair of Translational Oncology at Brown University and Founder and Advisor at Iylon Precision Oncology, shared a post by  on LinkedIn:

“Visionary Leadership in Action.

Most leaders work to shape the present, but visionary leaders operate for the future. During my postdoc days, I had the incredible opportunity to meet one such visionary leader, Samir Somaiya. His forward-thinking and confidence in the potential of research led us to create SATHGEN THERAPEUTICS, a subdivision of Godavari Biorefineries Limited, a company dedicated to developing cancer therapeutics.

Today, our journey has reached a key milestone with our first drug in clinical trials. I want to give a huge thanks to Samir for his visionary approach and for trusting me. Together, we are committed to making a significant impact on the lives of cancer patients.”


“Many years ago Sendurai Mani and I thought that Indian companies could imagine and do drug discovery. So we started a division with a super team of scientists SATHGEN THERAPEUTICS under Godavari Biorefineries Limited to aim to find a treatment for triple negative breast cancer. Our team and collaborators have brought this molecule to the clinic to be tested for safety. Once this is successfully done, we will aim to test this drug for efficacy. We are hoping to succeed so that our dream of drug discovery to make a difference in the lives of so many can be realised. The magazine India Pharma Outlook has identified us as one of the 10 best in Drug Discovery for 2024. Complents to our team.”
