Clinical Pharmacology Quality Assurance

The Clinical Pharmacology Quality Assurance (CPQA) program is a global cross-network program that develops and conducts quality assurance activities in support of HIV translational research and clinical trial networks. CPQA works with laboratories participating in HIV clinical trials to improve the quality of pharmacology data, increase awareness of the importance of pharmacology at clinical sites, and provide a mechanism for ensuring the quality of pharmacology data in HIV clinical trials.
