The company plans to further establish its presence in the country by collaborating with AIG Hospitals, Hyderabad for joint research projects. By partnering with one of India's premier healthcare institutions, Olympus aims to leverage clinical expertise and insights to drive the development of innovative medical solutions that address the evolving needs of patients worldwide.
