Clinical Protocol Office – Clinical Trials

The Clinical Protocol Office (CPO) supports 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 works to assure patient eligibility and safety, regulatory compliance, and quality, reproducible data.
