Sigmapharm – an innovative company with history


Founding of ‘Sigmapharm’ by the ENT-specialist Prof. Dr. Herbert Pichler and the chemist Dr. Herbert Punzengruber in Vienna. Due to the close cooperation with the NASA the projects of the company are strongly based on knowledge of the aerospace medicine and space research and result in the development of important medicinal products for ear, nose and throat.
