The Cancer Center Research Administration Team provides the infrastructure and support to enable the UVA Cancer Center to function effectively, efficiently, and cohesively. Our goal is to facilitate the work of the center by enabling investigators to focus on their research. Specific duties include:
The Protocol Review Committee (PRC) is charged with providing institutional peer review of all cancer-related clinical research protocols, except for trials that have received a previous peer review (e.g. NCI cooperative group trials.)
The Office of Clinical Research (OCR) at the Cancer Center provides centralized support for the conduct of cancer clinical trials to all Cancer Center Investigators in the areas of budget development, protocol writing, federal, state, and local regulations, subject recruitment, training, compliance, and informatics.
The OCR Leadership ensures the development of clinical trials and of the infrastructure needed to support the clinical research enterprise.
