Clinical Protocol & Data Management Shared Resource

About Clinical Protocol and Data Management

The Clinical Protocol and Data Management Office, known at Stanford as the Cancer Clinical Trials Office (CCTO), is a centralized resource for clinical researchers. We assist with regulatory, financial, study conduct and administrative issues to facilitate efficient activation and conduct of protocols; thus, investigators can focus on scientific research needs and patient care.

CCTO programs are designed to increase awareness of and accrual to clinical trials, as well as to centralize and standardize the processes, quality and efficiencies of conducting clinical trials in compliance with the regulatory, documentation and oversight requirements.

The CCTO offers the following services to SCI members: 

  • Centralized administrative support 
  • Centralize and standardize data collection and reporting of clinical cancer research
  • Educational programs for research staff
  • Coordinate outreach efforts to increase clinical trials awareness and accrual
  • Promote interdisciplinary collaborations and translational medical research

The CCTO has developed and employs standard processes for clinical trial conduct in line with Good Clinical Practice and National Clinical Trials Network operational requirements. The CCTO continually reviews processes searching for ways to improve procedures and services, as well as to enable the highest quality conduct of SCI’s clinical research.
