FAIRFIELD — Touro University California’s College of Pharmacy will receive a $150,000 grant from the Joseph and Vera Long Foundation that will go toward increasing research and classroom space.

“This is about creating state-of-the-art technology for the study of health sciences and will help us apply high-tech courses that enhance diverse needs and interests of our students,” said Shelley Berkley, chief operating officer for Touro Western Division, in a press release.

Touro will use the grant to create 2,400 square feet of research space, changing four classrooms and meeting rooms into two research labs and two high-technology classrooms with digital imaging hardware and software.

The Joseph and Vera Long Foundation previously provided a $300,000 grant to create the Pharmacy Practice Center, which opened in 2013. Touro University California is located on Mare Island.
