CERASP

Center of Expertise and Applied Research in BioPharmaceutical Sciences

Cégep Gérald-Godin and John Abbott College

The Center works primarily to support small- and medium-sized businesses in the development and manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, natural health products and cosmetics. CERASP offers its expertise in all areas from the optimization and validation of each step of the manufacturing process, technology transfer for technical assistance, quality systems, and regulatory affairs (audits and regulatory standards). It also offers its expertise in training and information dissemination with the aim of allowing for the completion of various applied research activities.

The mission of the Centre d’expertise et de recherche appliquée en sciences pharmaceutiques (CERASP) is to develop and support applied research, training and technology transfer in connection with the discovery, development and evaluation of innovative solutions in the pharmaceutical field, particularly in biopharmaceutics, pharmaceutical technology and production, and digital health.
