Researcher Resources

These researcher resources are provided by Spectrum as part of our mission to accelerate the translation of basic scientific discoveries into practical solutions.

Acknowledge the Grant: NIH Required Language

Spectrum projects that are funded by or utilize resources or services funded by the Stanford CTSA are required to acknowledge the grant in publications and grant applications. This includes the use of the CTRU, funding for pilot projects, biostaticians, informatics, and other consultation services—and research training such as the KL2 and pilot programs.

Clinical Research Quality (CRQ)

Clinical Research Quality (CRQ), established in 2016 and administered by Spectrum under the direction of the Senior Associate Dean for Research, facilitates clinical research regulatory compliance and contributes to school-wide quality and compliance improvement initiatives.

Clinical Research Unit (CRU)

Clinical Research Units (CRU) seek to create an organizational framework, at the departmental or divisional level, that promotes high-quality clinical and translational research and operational success.

SHC and SCH Researcher Tools

Study team resources required for studies utilizing services provided by Stanford Health Care (SHC) and/or Stanford Children’s Health (SCH) including the budgeting and billing workbooks, other templates, forms, and information.

OnCore System

OnCore® is Stanford's clinical trials management system (CTMS). OnCore helps researchers monitor recruitment, and manage and track clinical research protocols and participants. Cancer-related clinical research must be tracked through Oncore—get more information. For non-cancer clinical research, visit OnCore Resources and Login.

Participant Engagement

Our staff can assist you with all phases of the participant recruitment process, including designing a plan, reviewing study ads and flyers, working with our cohort discovery tools, and connecting you with co-investigators at other institutions.

Scientific Core Facilities

The Stanford University School of Medicine supports a number of shared research facilities housing specialized scientific instruments and services.  These include over 20 scientific Service Centers, which are open to all researchers in the University at predetermined fees, and a number of Cores, which house equipment shared among a group of labs.
