The DSI/NWU Preclinical Drug Development Platform (PCDDP) is a state-of-the-art facility situated on the Potchefstroom campus of the North-West University in South Africa. The PCDDP was established in 2011, as a national facility contributing to building a vibrant pharmaceutical industry in South Africa by functioning as a preclinical testing platform for local and international research institutions and companies involved in development of pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines, and phytomedicines.

The PCDDP is a place where excellence is pursued. We invite you to explore our facility, to share in the excitement of our work as we close the gap between pharmaceutical research and development (R&D) and the market.
