Stanford Children's Health Clinical Research Intake Portal


Stanford Children’s Health (SCH) is pleased to announce the implementation of a new electronic intake tool for clinical and translational research projects taking place at SCH. This intake portal, developed in collaboration with hospital departments and the SCH Clinical Research Support Office (CRSO) is designed to increase efficiency of clinical and translational research grants and contracts at SCH. Beginning September 2020, research teams will be directed to use this intake portal in order to help with planning for their projects. The intent is to recognize study operational needs early during study design that historically may not have been fully appreciated until study initiation resulting in re-work and possible effort or budgeting short-falls.

This new portal is designed to facilitate early and frequent communication between SCH departments and School of Medicine research teams. New potential research studies or grants that may utilize SCH services should be input into the portal prior to IRB, budget and contract approval.  The information collected in this intake portal will help hospital departments plan for operational, staffing and training requirements to support new projects. It will also allow for SCH leadership to have more visibility into the robust portfolio of clinical and translational research taking place in the hospital. Study teams that reach out to hospital departments for support with clinical research studies will be re-directed to input their studies into the intake portal as a first step.

For questions about this new intake portal, or for assistance with planning for your research projects, please reach out to CRSO at
