Construction of a pharmacy outcomes research facility and drug information library is underway at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s School of Pharmacy.
“We are excited about the next phase of our construction and how it will continue enhancing and building our program and school,” says School of Pharmacy Dean Michael Avaltroni.
The newly-constructed space will include three exam and interview rooms, a small conference room, study and research carrels and a 2,500 volume drug information library.
Practice, social and administrative science faculty will now have a place to conduct focus group and patient outcomes research. The new room will also serve as a spot to begin wellness initiatives internally at the College at Florham and externally in the local community.

The drug information library will house both books and a database on pharmacy and pharmacy-related health care.
Additional construction is scheduled for the compounding laboratory — new laboratory benches, flooring and equipment will be installed so students can prepare for the hands-on aspects of pharmacy compounding, or customization of medications.
Finally, the student lounge and study area will expand to include new seating, areas for social gatherings and additional options for vending and food.
Construction is to be completed by the end of this summer.
