Administering Exceptional Patient Care
The Clinical Trials Office Translational Research Unit (CTO TRU) is dedicated to caring for study participants and ensuring their safety while enrolled in clinical trials. We work closely with study teams to conduct protocol driven activities such as drug administrations, clinical data and sample collection.
CTO TRU is located at the UW Medical Center (UWMC) and staffed by nurses and medical assistants who are Good Clinical Practice certified and Human Subject Protection trained. We provide vast expertise in complying with complicated and innovative treatment such as immunotherapy studies, high-volume sampling and/or pharmacokinetic studies.
Clinical services administered by TRU staff for study participants include:
- Nursing care, such as frequent blood draws and IV placement
- Administration of study drugs (all routes)
- Nursing observation and monitoring
- Intravenous infusions
