Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomic Research 

The  UIC Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomic Research (CPR)  is an interdisciplinary research unit of the UIC College of Pharmacy, jointly established by the Department of Pharmacy Practice and the Department of Pharmacy Systems, Outcomes and Policy. The Center was established in  November 2001 by the Illinois Board of Higher Education as the "Center  for Pharmacoeconomic Research." In November 2012 the name was changed to  the "Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomic Research" to  reflect an expanded scope of work conduct by the Center.

Drug Information Group 

The  Drug Information Group at the University of Illinois Medical Center is  an academic and consultative unit of the College of Pharmacy and  provides clinical support to organizations in need. The goal of the  Center is to provide evidence-based medical information, to enhance the  skills of healthcare professionals through workshops, and to serve as a  resource for healthcare professionals involved in patient care. These  services are provided by experienced faculty on a consultative basis.

Infectious Disease 

The  Section of Infectious Disease Pharmacotherapy was established in 1996.  It provides clinical pharmacy services at the University of Illinois  Medical Center at Chicago, and to the Chicago Community Programs for  Clinical Research on AIDS, the Cook County Hospital and the Core Center  of the Cook County Bureau of Health Services Clinics.

The section is active in both clinical and basic science research. Through the Microbiology Research Laboratory, it conducts basic and applied research on antimicrobial systems from Phase I through IV. It also explores activity of new compounds, studies the improved use of both new and old antimicrobials, and new approaches to pharmacotherapy for drug resistant infections. 

The section has one of the largest Pharmacy Infectious Disease Fellowship training programs in the U.S. As a result the section has become a major factor in training the next generation of pharmacy educators, researchers and practitioners in the area of infectious diseases pharmacotherapy.

The Section of Infectious Disease Pharmacotherapy is also active in the area of educational programming for pharmacists and other health care providers. Its goals are to provide educational information and programing to pharmacists in a six-state area about Infectious Disease pharmacotherapy as it relates to HIV infection. Every year, the section holds two continuing education conferences: the spring conference focuses on issues of HIV pharmacotherapy and the fall conference focuses on new concepts and controversies in the area of Infectious Disease. Educational outreach has also led to the section's involvement in the Midwest AIDS Training and Education Center (MATEC) which is based in the Jane Addams College of Social work.
