On September 29, 2016 UI officially broke ground on a new $96.3 million pharmacy building that will feature cutting-edge research laboratories, innovative technology, and collaborative learning spaces.  The lower level of this new building will be home to UIP’s new sterile products manufacturing area.  This new sterile manufacturing area will be approximately 16,000 square feet and include two complete isolator lines, each with its own lyophilizer.  This will increase UIP’s batch size capacity approximately 5-fold to 20,000 vials/batch.  UIP will continue to retain its ability to make small, IND enabling batches for clinical supplies with this facility.
