Through leading-edge innovation and collaborative interactions among students, faculty, university partners and the community, our Academic Research Centers provide extensive resources and opportunities for practical, hands-on experience that prepares our students to make a difference in their communities. Here, students can explore pathways to developing new treatments and delivery methods that advance the disciplines of pharmacy practice, care, services, information and technology.

Giant Eagle Center For Pharmacy Practice
The goal of the Giant Eagle Center for Pharmacy Practice is to provide an environment for pharmacy students to integrate, reinforce, and enhance the process of learning. Faculty demonstrate how lecture material in a classroom is related to actual pharmacy practice. The Center is complete with state-of-the-art technology, prescription, nonprescription, and herbal medications. The Center aims to create a space for students to work together to enhance their learning. By showing the relationship between class lectures and pharmacy practice, students gain a better understanding of their classes. The Center also serves as a site for various classes and electives, educational lectures, training, and competency testing of student pharmacists.
