Clinical Trials Infrastructure
The UVa Cancer Center has a strong Clinical Trials Infrastructure, comprised of three key areas:
- A central office, Office for Clinical Research (OCR), that supports investigators in the areas of budget development, protocol writing, federal, state, and local regulations, subject recruitment, training, compliance, and informatics.
- Disease-specific research teams that are involved in trial implementation, study coordination, and data management.
- Clinical Research Implementation Committee (CRIC) that oversees the activation and implementation of therapeutic oncology clinical trials.
