WELCOME ADDRESS

You are warmly welcome to the official website of the Centre for Drug Discovery, Development and Production (CDDDP). CDDDP is a MacArthur Foundation funded Centre of Excellence at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. The Centre was set up in 2012 as a platform for world-class training in drug discovery, development, production and medicine regulation as well as to provide opportunities and services for research and development of quality medicines that meet the specific needs of Nigeria, sub-Saharan Africa and the whole of Africa in general. The Centre, which MacArthur Foundation refers to as the “First of its Kind in Africa” was designated by New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD)/African Medicine Regulation Harmonization (AMRH) in 2014 as one of the eleven Regional Centres of Regulatory Excellence (RCORE) in Africa with the oversight functions for (i) training on regulatory science; (ii) development of clinical trial oversight structures and clinical trial expertise; and (iii) improvement on quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) to attain international accreditation.
