Biography Timeline

1972

John Nath Kapoor was born in Amritsar, India, into a family of modest means. He later moved to Mumbai, where he graduated from the Institute of Chemical Technology (formerly UDCT) with a degree in pharmacy. After moving to the United States, he attended the University at Buffalo on a scholarship and obtained a doctorate in medicinal chemistry in 1972.

He began his career in 1972 at Invenex Pharmaceutical in Grand Island, New York.

2017

In October 2017, Kapoor was arrested in Arizona and charged with RICO conspiracy, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and conspiracy to violate the Anti-Kickback Law. The charges stem from allegations that he participated in a scheme to bribe doctors to prescribe fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid manufactured under the brand name Subsys by his company Insys Therapeutics. U.S. Attorney William Weinreb said the charges reflected authorities' commitment to combat the opioid epidemic. Kapoor is also alleged to have conspired to defraud health insurance providers. Shortly after the charges were announced, Kapoor resigned from the Board of Insys Therapeutics.

On June 3, 2019, the University at Buffalo passed a resolution to remove Kapoor's name from the UB Pharmacy School's building in light of Kapoor's RICO conviction.

On May 2, 2019, Kapoor was convicted of engaging in a racketeering conspiracy to increase the profits of his company's opiate painkiller, Subsys. On January 23, 2020, he was sentenced to 5.5 years in prison and described as a "former billionaire"; Federal prosecutors had asked for 15 years.
