The mission of the Stanford Community Advisory Board (CAB) for Clinical Research is to build and foster partnerships between researchers and the community to ensure clinical research is participant focused, successful and meaningful. The primary aims of the CAB are to (1) enable community members to participate in the research planning process, including assistance with dissemination of research findings to the community; and (2) provide feedback to researchers on recruitment strategies, including reaching specific populations. Researchers receive direct feedback and guidance at CAB meetings and are provided a summary of the meeting discussion.
Who is eligible to present at CAB meetings?
Clinical researchers from across Stanford’s School of Medicine are eligible to use the CAB for presentation of research ideas, guidance on study start-up and design, recruitment methods and materials, incentives and barriers to participation, etc.

Quotes from Presenters:
Particularly useful were the suggestions on ways in which we could provide value to our participants through involvement in the community.
The CAB put voice to some of our efforts and some concerns we experience internally – it is valuable to have this voice for recommendations come from a neutral party – the CAB can say things that we may not be able to say as an involved party.
Preparing for and meeting with CAB was a good exercise for me personally because it truly made me think about our projects and barriers to our research.
