School of Pharmacy opens drug manufacturing facility

    A new drug manufacturing facility at the School of Pharmacy will simultaneously supply the research community as well as train students in quality assurance and regulatory affairs. The cGMP, or “current Good Manufacturing Practices,” facility is one of only six based at universities nationwide.

    The facility will produce drug tablets, capsules and powders as well as offer services to both university scientists and pharmaceutical companies that are testing experimental oral medications.

    The Food and Drug Administration requires that drugs used in research be manufactured using the same standards, or “current Good Manufacturing Practices,” that are required for drugs already on the market, explained David Lebo, director of cGMP services. [more]

   The Temple University News announced that the University had grown tired of the crowded alleys of parked cars and asked the city council for permission to be able to tow cars that were illegally parked on campus grounds. Three months after the request, administrators were given the OK.
