Office of the Clinical Director
The Office of the Clinical Director serves as the interface between CCR and the NIH Clinical Center, the nation's largest hospital devoted entirely to clinical research. The NIH Clinical Center includes 242 in-patient beds and 90 day-hospital stations, which house units and clinics where cancer and HIV patients are treated on CCR clinical trials. CCR's Clinical Director, Dr. William L. Dahut, oversees and assures the quality of medical care delivered to patients participating in CCR clinical trials. This office also supports CCR's clinical research program by providing biostatistical expertise for trial design and analysis, administrative support for the protocol review and monitoring process, training of clinical research personnel, an outreach program to promote patient accrual, data management, auditing and monitoring of in-house and multi-institutional trials, and informatics for data collection and storage.
Medical Oncology Service
The Medical Oncology Service, directed by Dr. James L. Gulley, provides outstanding care to patients enrolled in CCR clinical trials, trains physician-scientists, and conducts clinical research across a spectrum of diseases and mechanisms.
