Roots in Research

Since the founding of PARC Institute in 1986, James L.

In addition to conducting private research for the agriculture & food safety industries, AHPharma, Inc. also develops products for these markets.  Several products that AHPharma has produced or is in the process of developing were obtained through tech-transfers with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  Other products are internally conceptualized or brought to AHPharma for development by local inventors in the Delmarva community.
