CPPR Loses a Legend

Feb 27, 2018 – University of Connecticut


CPPR is greatly saddened by the untimely passing of Professor Michael Pikal, who through the years, served as the CPPR Site Director at UConn until his recent retirement. Throughout his prolific career, first in industry and later in academia, Dr. Pikal has been a pioneer in the pharmaceutical sciences. His numerous seminal contributions have helped shape the area of drug development in a profound manner.
