The Center for Research on Complex Generics (CRCG) facilitates research collaborations that help increase access to safe and effective generic drugs.


CRCG promotes generic industry training and engages the public in complex generics research. Researchers work collaboratively to conduct studies and develop new techniques in complex generics.


Faculty conduct drug development research that spans many fields, including complex injectables, drug-device combination products, locally-acting drugs, and quantitative clinical pharmacology.


The University of Maryland, Baltimore and University of Michigan are well-positioned to conduct complex generic drug research that spans from formulation and analytical characterization to clinical studies.
