The Clinical Protocol Office (CPO) and its approximately 130 healthcare professionals support the design and conduct of oncology clinical trials. The CPO is responsible for patient and study coordination-related activities, including subject evaluation and registration, toxicity assessment and safety monitoring of novel therapeutics and patient education.

The CPO assists and facilitates protocol development, contract acquisition and management, regulatory oversight and compliance, preparation and submission of INDs for novel studies and novel compounds, internal and external study audits, quality control, and data acquisition, transcription and management. The CPO works with the Data Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMC), Compliance Committee and the Protocol Review Committee (PRC) to assure patient eligibility and safety, regulatory compliance and quality, reproducible data.
