Cancer Center Research
This Cancer Center office provides centralized support for the conduct of cancer clinical trials at the Health Sciences Center.
Its principal goal is to assist UVA physicians and nurses in the collection of data that are accurate, unbiased, and well-organized.
OCR also supports the Cancer Center Protocol Review Committee, which provides scientific and clinical review of in-house and industry-supported clinical protocols and ensures that all protocols meet the ethical standards of the University and are appropriate for the patient populations served by the Cancer Center. The OCR also publicizes active protocols to attending and referring physicians and alerts physicians to patient eligibility, whenever appropriate, for particular protocols.
