The Clinical Investigational Research Pharmacy (CIRP) is a licensed pharmacy that consists of specially trained pharmacists and pharmacy technicians within the Taneja College of Pharmacy. We are dedicated to helping investigators and study teams accomplish research goals and we support human clinical research by ensuring the delivery of high-quality pharmaceutical care by adhering to federal and state regulations as well as institutional policies for investigational drug control.
The CIRP is also dedicated to the success of our future pharmacists at the Taneja College of Pharmacy through our Elective Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience rotation program. During the course of this 6-week rotation, students are introduced to the role a clinical investigational pharmacist plays in the conduct of clinical trials.
The Clinical Investigational Research Pharmacy was established in 2011 with only 2 trials. Since then we have grown and now provide services to various USF Health investigators in a variety of specialties.
If you are an investigator or study coordinator needing CIRP services, please contact us with any requests or questions. If you would like to request CIRP services, please email a copy of the study protocol as well as the pharmacy manual if available.
