CUMC Research Pharmacy




The Research Pharmacy was established by the Columbia University Office of Clinical Trials. It has served the research needs of Columbia University and New York Presbyterian Hospital Investigators and their sponsors since 1995.


Where is the Research Pharmacy located?

We have two locations. The pharmacies serving the NYPH and clinics are located in the Herbert Irving Cancer Center, 161 Fort Washington Ave., 7-749 at the Pediatric Oncology Center and William Black Medical Research Building, 650 West 168th Street Room B30.


Hours of Operation

Our standard hours of operation are from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and we are also continuously “on-call” for studies that require immediate drug dispensing.
