Sathgen Biotech, a Division of  Godavari Biorefineries Ltd , is working on the discovery of
molecules for the treatment of breast and prostate cancer cells. Our focus is different, since
we seek to eliminate cancer stem cells. Our approach has been to chemically synthesize
analogs of molecules found in nature, make more efficacious derivatives, and then screen
them for anti-cancer and anti-cancer stem cell properties.
Godavari Biorefineries ltd is a biorefining company that produces sugar, other foods,
biofuels, chemicals, power, compost, waxes, and related products, using sugarcane as the
primary feedstock. Our aim is to engage in research and innovate by continuously making
new products and entering new markets in order to derive the maximum value from our
feedstock. Our research areas include sustainable farming, transformation of biomass
(chemical, mechanical and biological), product development, and process optimization.
