Studies of cancer treatment approaches that aim to achieve equivalence of survival whilst reducing toxicity or optimising treatment delivery will be considered where the potential for a significant impact on patient outcomes can be demonstrated. Funding for translational research that allows us to learn more from the clinical trial can be requested in applications to this scheme. If your proposal includes research that seeks to enable the early detection of cancer or pre-cancerous states, you may be eligible for our early detection funding opportunities. As part of the Clinical Trial outline application you can apply for costs associated with non-regulatory pre-clinical studies required for the initiation of early phase clinical trials of cancer treatments including, but not limited to, proof-of-concept studies for drug re-purposing and novel combination approaches for drugs post-candidate stage.

There are several start-up fees when you initiate a clinical trial. These vary depending on the design of the study. Below, we have defined the fees and identifed the responsible parties. In creating your budget, log into the rates page for up-to-date fees.
The majority of clinical studies conduced at the SOM are industry-designed and -sponsored Phase 1 to Phase 3 clinical trials, with the ultimate goal of FDA product licensure. Most of these studies are multicenter studies that follow a protocol developed by the sponsor with little intellectual input by the investigators. At the other extreme are single site studies where the investigator plays a primary role in the design as well as the execution of the study.
The Website is never intended as an exhaustive list of resources covering every aspect of clinical research. As a work in progress, it will continue to expand and improve as additional needs are identified and new resources become available. Please contact the Mulford Library if you would like to recommend resources to be included on the site or have any comments, questions, or suggestions for improving the site. To start a research project, you need to identify a research idea or problem that warrants investigation.
