Clinical Research at Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center member institutions is facilitated by way of a unified clinical research effort across all member institutions. There are three offices responsible for coordinating this unified effort: The Clinical Trials Research Informatics Office (CTRIO), The Office of Data Quality (ODQ), and The Office for Human Research Studies (OHRS).

Although all documents are available in a centralized place via the Protocol Lifecycle, or the Document Library, support for specific clinical research areas, functions, or software used across the Cancer Center can be attained by contacting the corresponding office below.
