the Atrimed Plant Science Universe.
Atrimed is a critically acclaimed Biotech Pharma company with a difference. Its plant-based research provides holistic and safe cures to human illnesses. But what really sets it apart, is its firm belief in molecular testing and clinical trials. Atrimed is thus a pioneer in successfully combining the best practices of Plant Science and Allopathy into a verified science of medicine called Phytology.
It is this difference that gives it the edge over its competitors, setting it above and ahead of them in research and a wide product range that has stemmed from it. This has attracted the best scientists to it – healthcare and research professionals with extensive learning and experience in fields like phytochemistry and biotechnology – and scientists on a mission to see the world a healthier place.
At Atrimed, the world’s largest library of isolated plant molecules becomes the starting point for an endless voyage of discovery. Atrimed is one of the few companies that fuse a respect for traditional knowledge of natural medicines with globally-established conventions in molecular medicine. Thus, gained attention and respect from the international medical community while transforming the face of modern medicine.
From screening ancient texts on traditional and ethnic medicine, to creating the world’s largest plant molecule library; from in-vitro propagation of endangered species to state-of-the-art laboratories to hasten discoveries; from collaborating with medical innovators to transforming the face of medicine as we know it, Atrimed pushes the boundaries of plant science daily by its minute-to-minute dedication to the cause of herbs-based healing.
We assert with pride, that our commitment to quality and ethics are beyond reproach. Our policies and procedures pioneer new global standards of therapeutic efficacy. Consequently our competence and results have been recognised across the globe.

Dr. Latha Damle
Chief Scientific Officer
Dr. Latha Damle is the founder and Chief Scientific Officer at Atrimed. She is an Ayurvedic physician with a post-graduate degree in plant pharmacology and a fellowship in the field of medicinal chemistry at Toyama Medical and Pharmaceutical University Toyama, Japan. She has also acquired proficiency in chromatographic analysis which is the backbone of natural product research. With over 23 years of clinical experience, she understands the need for precision treatment.
Her research is propelled by her insight that therapeutic efficacy cannot be attributed to one molecule but to a combination of multiple complementary biomolecules, also known as Poly-pharmacology. She studies the biological activity of complementary molecules.
She has developed new methods for the extraction of unique chemicals from plants, their standardization, and the measurement of their presence in the final product. Dr. Latha, with her understanding of plant chemistry, knows that the time of collection of plant material and parts of the plants to be used for optimum extraction are of prime importance. With her background in clinical pharmacology and medicine, she has evaluated the efficacy of these Phyto-molecules against various diseases.
Dr. Latha has been an outstanding, meritorious student of ancient textbooks. Her dedication to keen observation, the pursuit of science, appetite for hard work, unbiased research, and meticulous documentation has contributed significantly to the growth of the unique products of Atrimed
Is it some kind of magic that a well-known Biotechnology professional who has immensely contributed to the development of vaccines and biologics and presented seminars on subjects of immunology, biologics and vaccines, is a great music connoisseur and enthusiast too?

Brands under Atrimed
Mahila by Atrimed – the only corporate healthcare chain for women in India – is incepted keeping in mind the welfare of women in our society with an integrated social outreach program for gynaecology, skincare, general diseases and early cancer detection. These clinics are trustworthy primary healthcare centres for women, operated by women healthcare professionals. The clinics provide integrated cutting-edge therapy and prevention with the help of both Ayurveda and Western medicines. All clinics function as an integral part of the community outreach through various health and wellness programs, especially those related to prevention, like early cancer detection in women.
Mahila is envisioned by the founders of Atrimed – Dr. Hrishikesh Damle, Dr. Shiban Ganju and Dr. Latha Damle – considering the plight of women with no attributed healthcare for them.
India got its freedom 72 years back but in this sleepy village in Amethi (UP), women were still living in the dark pre-independence era. They didn’t have access to education and good healthcare services. Infant and mother mortality rate during delivery was very high due to malnutrition and unsafe practices during child-birth. Tuberculosis was also a big contributor in rising death toll.
When Dr. Shibin saw their plight, he was deeply pained and decided to help them out. After giving it a lot of thought, he came up with Save A Mother – a foundation which educates women about self and family healthcare and nutrition, provides them with necessary medication, health check-ups and more. It substantially reduced mother infant mortality rate and deaths due to tuberculosis and brought the light of happiness in the life of villagers. It is a sustainable healthcare system for the poor. Taking this philosophy ahead, SAM has joined hands with Mahila to serve the women countrywide.
