Clinical Research

At the UCI Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC) — Orange County's only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center — patients receive compassionate and highly personalized treatment. The cancer center also provides patients with access to clinical trials and cutting-edge treatments as they are developed. At any given time, UCI is participating in at least 200 clinical trials, many of them developed by CFCCC members. For more information, please contact us at ucstudy@hs.uci.edu or 877-827-8839.

Disease-Oriented Teams

Disease-Oriented Teams are multidisciplinary groups of basic, translational, clinical, and population health investigators who collaborate on a specific cancer area in order to further the translation of CFCCC discoveries through the pipeline towards interventional clinical trials. As the first component of the CFCCC’s two-step clinical research review process, the focus of the DOTs is to ensure rigorous internal scientific review of protocols, curate the clinical trial portfolio, and drive innovation.

Protocol Review and Monitoring Committee

The CFCCC’s Protocol Review and Monitoring Committee (PRMC) is the second step in the review process for new cancer-related clinical research studies. The PRMC evaluates new studies for scientific merit, feasibility, overall portfolio balance, and potential to accrue populations that are underrepresented in clinical trials. The PRMC also monitors the progress and continued relevance of studies that are open to enrollment.
