Prior to starting Lyne, from 1956 to 1962, Dr. Crisafi was a Professor of Pharmaceutical Technology at the New England College of Pharmacy. Following the sale of Lyne Laboratories to Damon Corporation,  from 1970 through 1978, Dr. Crisafi served as a Vice President of Damon Corporation, managing Lyne Laboratories as a Division of Damon Corporation.  He also was  a member of the Business Development Group during Damon’s extremely aggressive merger and acquisition period.  Dr. Crisafi’s passion for reducing the medication error rate in hospitals resulted in Lyne Laboratories being the first pharmaceutical company to introduce and market liquid pharmaceutical products in unit-dose cups.  Dr. Crisafi was also the founder of the Regional Service Center, the pioneer business for outsourced unit-dose and bar code medication repackaging services for our nation’s hospitals.  That company was sold to Safecor Health in 2008.  Dr. Crisafi earned his BS in Pharmacy from Northeastern University’s College of Pharmacy and his Ph.D. in Industrial Pharmacy, from the University of Florida, where he was a Fellow of the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education. In addition to his involvement with Lyne Laboratories, Dr. Bob is the founder of several other health care companies, including Crisafi Pharmacy, Regional Service Center, Advanced Home Healthcare and Careway Wellness Center.
