Security Cameras are stratigically placed throughout the CPMI research facility, both inside and outside, to monitor and record all activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Clinical Pharmacology of Miami is protected by a stand-by 40k watt natural gas generator. In the event of loss of Florida Power & Light power to the building, the strong, but quiet generator automatically detects the loss and starts providing power to all essential portions of the facility.
This includes: all the refrigerators, freezers, centrifuges, and security monitoring equipment. The natural gas supply allows the generator to work without interruption for an extended period of time.
