Stanford University recently completed a major update to the Spectrum website, a collection of resources that assists researchers with the complex process of conducting clinical and translational research.

Managed by Spectrum, which is the Stanford Center for Clinical and Translational Research and Education, the website is part of an ongoing effort to streamline this type of research across the university.

Enhancements to the website include:

  • Improved site navigation and content organization.
  • A unified page for research-related forms, documents, budget workbooks, pricelists and templates.
  • Links to universitywide resources and consulting services for the design and conduct of research.
  • Consolidated information on funding and educational opportunities offered by Spectrum.
  • A dashboard for viewing all shared scientific core facilities across the university.
  • A portal to the expanded services in the Clinical Trial Research Unit and Spectrum Biobank.
  • Information on Spectrum’s recently established Clinical Research Quality office, which provides advice on procedures, audits and the registry.
  • Updates that reflect Spectrum’s recent organizational and leadership changes.

Spectrum is accepting questions and feedback about the site.

Stanford Medicine integrates research, medical education and health care at its three institutions - Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics), and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.
