Shantha Biotechnics is an Indian biotechnology company based in Hyderabad. It is the first Indian company to develop, manufacture and market a recombinant human healthcare product in India. The company is a wholly owned Subsidiary of Sanofi group.
The genesis of Shantha Biotechnics Ltd can be traced back to the initiatives of Dr. K I Varaprasad Reddy and Mr. Khalil Ahmed; Dr. Varaprasad and Mr. Khalil Ahmed established the company in 1993 with the sole purpose of developing efficacious but cost effective vaccines and therapeutics.
The project began modestly as an R&D outfit at the Osmania University under the industry-university interactive programme in 1993 and later at the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology until an independent R&D facility was built.
