Only pharmacists, MD's, DVMs, PI's, etc. should be registering in their own name followed by GHSU.
Before ANY researcher can obtain a federal DEA license, they must obtain a Georgia DEA license. GHSU researchers can waive the federal DEA application fee because GHSU is a state institution. The Georgia DEA license application requires a photograph and notarized signature. Researchers will be required to complete the Pharmacy Facility Application. The application(s) and fee schedule can be found on the website of the Georgia Board of Pharmacy:
The primary individual in charge/responsible for the protocol for the program is required to provide evidence of US citizenship (copy of birth certificate or passport) or qualified alien status under the Work Opportunity and Personal Responsibility Act of 1996. Also, attach a brief resume and current photo (2x2 passport style photo).
If you have questions contact the Georgia Board of Pharmacy at telephone # 800-656-6568.
