A catalyst of scientific progress, the Industrial Pharmacy Laboratory (IPHL) at USciences is a GLP-compliant pharmaceutical research facility offering complete drug delivery research services.
Funded by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, IPHL occupies 4,500 square feet of state-of-the-art space in the historic Griffith Hall.
In addition to the full array of instrumentation and equipment focused on cost-effective pharmaceutical drug delivery, IPHL clients have access to numerous resources available through USciences’ core facilities on campus, including chemistry, bioimaging, bioinformatics, and the vivarium.
The USciences Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences provides most key personnel for IPHL—scientists with an average experience of over 20 years in areas of drug discovery, drug delivery, formulations, and protein research.
