A new research centre has been set up to look at the access and affordability of medicines. 

The University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice Research will investigate medicines utilisation, pricing, economic evaluation of pharmacy services, as well as health services and pharmacy practice research in low, middle and high-income countries.

Headed by Zaheer Babar, Professor of Medicines and Healthcare, the Centre brings together members of the University’s Pharmacy department with industry professionals. The aim is to establish and strengthen links for better collaboration and to generate evidence to influence policy and practice around patients and the pharmacy profession.

“Our research staff are creative and innovative practitioners who have wide industrial and research experience,” said Professor Babar. “They continually use their established industry links to refresh and update their research activities, ensuring that their work is at the leading edge of technology.”

Future activities will include planning a writing retreat for 2018 and a one-day pharmacy practice research symposium in the summer of 2019. Details will be posted on the CPPPR’s website.
