Stanford Children's Health Clinical Research Intake Portal


Welcome to the Stanford Children’s Health Clinical Research Intake Portal.

This portal supports the intake of new clinical and translational research studies that will take place in whole or in part at Stanford Children’s Health (SCH).

WHAT: Any clinical or translational research study that will take place in SCH inpatient or outpatient space, or use any hospital services (Pharmacy, Radiology, etc).

WHEN: Prior to IRB submission and execution of the study budget or contract. For grant-funded projects, this intake should ideally be completed before the grant application and budget are finalized and submitted to the funder.

WHO: The Principal Investigator or any member of the study staff may submit a study to the intake portal. MCHRI membership is not required.


  1. To recognize study operational needs early during study design/activation to help hospital departments plan for operational impacts, staffing, training and cost recovery.
  2. To connect study teams with SCH departments and units needed to support their study.
  3. To allow for SCH leadership to have more visibility into the robust portfolio of clinical and translational research taking place in the hospital.
