Center for Pharmaceutical Development

The Center for Pharmaceutical Development (CPD), established in February 2010, provides a forum for academic and industrial scientists to develop novel approaches for the improvement of pharmaceutical API manufacturing, for product formulation, and for analytical methods.  The distinctive strengths of each of the University partners will provide industrial participants with unique opportunities to advance topics on the manufacturing, formulation and analysis of pharmaceuticals.  The Center facilitates technologies such as the creation of more selective and robust biological and chemical catalysts that allow more streamlined processes, the development of improved methods for stabilizing drugs and vaccines to protect the nation’s drug supply, and the design of new techniques for the nondestructive evaluation of pharmaceutical products.
