Namesake


John N. Kapoor

President of EJ Financial Enterprises, Inc., and a skilled entrepreneur who has transformed numerous businesses into profitable corporations, John N. Kapoor, PhD '72, for nearly a decade has been the most generous donor to the UB pharmacy school, which is ranked in the top two of Northeast U.S. pharmacy schools and in the top 25 nationwide. Mr. Kapoor and his wife, Editha, contributed $5 million to the Kapoor Hall project, which received an additional $46 million from New York State.

Born in Amritsar, India, Kapoor earned an undergraduate degree in pharmacy from Bombay University and sought to attend graduate school in the United States. UB offered him a graduate fellowship, allowing him to pursue a doctorate in medicinal chemistry. Throughout his career, Kapoor has demonstrated keen marketing insight. As president and CEO of LyphoMed, he rejuvenated the hospital products company into a more than $100-million-a-year business, which he then sold to Fujisawa Pharmaceuticals. He went on to serve in leadership positions at several U.S. pharmaceutical companies over the next 30 years, including Option Care, Inc., a provider of home health-care services; Akorn, Inc., a manufacturer and marketer of generic ophthalmic products; and Introgen Therapeutics, Inc., a gene therapy company.
