Center for Clinical Pharmacology

Partnering Institutions

Establishment of the Center for Clinical Pharmacology marked the first institutional-level partnership between two historic institutions in St. Louis - St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

The center is physically located on the College's campus, occupying 12,000 square feet of dedicated research space in the College's new Academic and Research Building. Faculty investigators are able to work across both institutions, tapping into academic and research resources.

Faculty at the center have academic appointments in both institutions. Three of the five laboratories that make up the center will be led by researchers with primary appointments at the College and adjunct appointments at WUSM.
