In Mayaguez, C-SOPS and the University of Puerto Rico built a dedicated 7,000 sq. ft. laboratory and office space devoted to training and industry-based research. This facility, named "C-SOPS-UPR", has now been completed and supports research by five faculty members from three different campuses.


The facility has 2,000 sq. feet for pharmaceutical operations (mixing, drying, compaction, etc.), 700 sq. ft. for analytical testing and another 1,200 sq. ft. for computer simulation and process control.
