About Us

The Clinical Materials Services Unit (CMSU) was founded in 2008 when clinical investigators from the University of Rochester determined the need for a dedicated, on-site facility to manage entire supply chains in support of clinical trials conducted at or through the University, a major player in NIH and industry sponsored clinical research globally. Core services include: secondary packaging, primary labeling, blinding, distribution, and return services, as well as regulatory support and production of clinical labels.

The team at the CMSU is comprised of seasoned pharma industry professionals who bring well over 150 years of experience in the areas of Quality, Regulatory, Operations, Packaging engineering and Pharmacy. The CMSU Quality System assures compliance with the cGMP regulations allowing investigators, Pharma and Biotech the full range of opportunity to conduct studies.
