Clinical Protocol Office
Clinical trials at UNC Lineberger are designed to bring new knowledge to the bedside, new investigational products and approaches to our patients, and new ways to spread that knowledge across the state and beyond.
The key to clinical trial success is the clinical research management team, housed in UNC Lineberger and working with patients across our healthcare system. UNC Lineberger is an exceptional comprehensive cancer center dedicated to the best possible care of patients now and to creating the new knowledge through research that will make cancer care better in the future. As the only public NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in North Carolina, we are dedicated to serving those from all ages, races, ethnicities, and regardless of financial status.
UNC Lineberger’s Clinical Protocol Office (CPO) is part of this clinical research management team and turns research concepts into operational clinical trials. Completing our mission requires a diverse team with unique skills unified by our passion to improve cancer outcomes. The CPO provides administrative, regulatory, compliance, project management, monitoring, clinical data management, clinical operations, training and study coordination support to the oncology clinical trials conducted at UNC.
