Cancer Trials Support Unit

The Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU) is designed to streamline and centralize many administrative, financial, and regulatory tasks associated with clinical trials. The CTSU provides registered investigators with a single access point to participate in NCI’s clinical trials on the CTSU listing. The CTSU facilitates access to protocols, training, and educational information. Highlights of the system include:

  • Centralized enrollment of patients on all Cooperative Group treatment trials
  • Increased physician and patient access to NCI-sponsored clinical trials
  • Streamlined and standardized trial regulatory reporting
  • Reduced regulatory/administrative burdens on investigators participating in NCI-sponsored cooperative group clinical trials (phases 1 – 3)
