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.

CRCG Call for Proposals Results

Congratulations to Géraldine Ayral, Joel Owen and Clémence Pinaud at SimulationsPlus (Lixoft and Cognigen divisions), and Joga Gobburu at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy for initiating CRCG research projects on "Best Practices for Establishing the Suitability of a Model Integrated Approach to Demonstrate the Bioequivalence of Long Acting Injectable Products."

In vivo BE studies for long acting injectable (LAI) drug products are challenging to conduct. Each group will develop best BE practices for LAI drug products that aim to support the development and evaluation of novel BE study designs.
