Center for Drug Development Science joins School

The Center for Drug Development Science (CDDS), located in Washington, DC, has joined with the UCSF School of Pharmacy to advance the safe and effective use of drugs. CDDS moved its academic affiliation in fall 2004 from Georgetown University to UCSF, while retaining its District of Columbia location at the University of California Washington, DC Center building, just six blocks from the White House. Leading the work at the CDDS is founder and director Carl Peck, MD, former director of the Food and Drug Administration Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. • Full story: UCSF Launches DC Center to Improve Drug Safety and Effectiveness.
