Investigator Resources

  • Investigators' Handbook for Clinical Investigators Conducting Therapeutic Clinical Trials Supported by Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP), Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD), National Cancer Institute (NCI) | NCI
  • Conducting Clinical Trials: Information for Investigators, Tools for Managing Trials, Registration/Reporting and Ensuring Patient Safety | NCI

Research Program Resources

II. Building Program Infrastructure

III. Mission Statements and Policies

(e.g., participation in researchŸ, selection of clinical trials, clinical trial portfolio and diversity, etc.) 

IV. Research Integrity

V. Regulations 

VI. Good Clinical Research Practices 

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training covers several topic areas related to ethical and scientific quality standards for designing, conducting, recording and reporting trials, to ensure compliance with GCP standards developed by various entities (i.e., International Code of Harmonisation [ICH] E6 GCP Guidance, Food and Drug Administration, Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative [CTTI], and TransCelerate BioPharma Inc.).

VII. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

VIII. Marketing Your Research Program

IX. Engaging Patients in Your Research Program 

X. Accessing Clinical Trials
