Srivastava has more than 20 years of experience in drug discovery, inflammation and metabolic diseases.

He has a doctoral degree in organic chemistry from the University of Lucknow in India.


"THANKS AGAIN for all the intellectual support that NEP has provided to us over the last year. My colleagues have been overwhelmingly impressed with the quality of service and level of thought that you have put into researching and thinking about our particular peptide and antibody production needs. The level of scholarship went well beyond what we expected from any peptide and antibody company, and was crucial in shaping our decisions. It has truly been a pleasure corresponding with you."
