About the ITR

ITR = Investigational Trials Resource

The Investigational Trials Resource (ITR) is an organizational unit within the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC) which was launched in 2007 with the goal of centralizing and streamlining the HDFCCC’s clinical research infrastructure and increasing patient accrual. The ITR is responsible for the entire clinical research enterprise within the HDFCCC, including oversight of the Clinical Research Support Office, Data and Safety Monitoring, and Protocol Review and Monitoring System, as well as providing interface for interactions of the Clinical Research enterprise with the Biostatistics Core and Translational Informatics Core. Its Director is Dr. Eric Small, the Associate Director for Clinical Sciences and Deputy Director of the HDFCCC. Dr. Small reports to the HDFCCC President and Director, Dr. Alan Ashworth.
