Section Meeting: What Does cGXP Mean And What Are The Differences Between cGLP, CGMP and cGCP?

Many of us work in a regulated environment. We may work on the manufacturing floor of a pharmaceutical company or we may work in a clinical laboratory in a hospital. Many of us may work in a government laboratory or in an academic laboratory in a university.
