Freidenrich Center for Translational Research

Cancer Center

Stanford’s most recent efforts to develop a Cancer Center began in 2003, through the first of many retreats involving researchers with strong cancer-relevant interests from across the University campus. A leadership team was assembled by 2005 with key recruitments, which capitalized on significant resources dedicated to the Cancer Center by the School of Medicine, Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, and Stanford University. A successful application to the NCI for Cancer Center designation received funding in June 2007. The Center membership has increased by almost 20% with corresponding 20% increase in total NIH funding to members, reflecting a significant increase in cancer-related research. The Cancer Center has eleven shared resources that support cancer investigators, including the Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office, which provides centralized regulatory, educational, research, and administrative services to investigators, and the Biostatistics resource, which provides consultation on optimal study design and data analysis.
