The Comprehensive Cancer Center
The UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) is an interdisciplinary non-ORU Center. As part of an elite group of NCI-designated Cancer Centers, the overarching goal of the Comprehensive Cancer Center is to shepherd new approaches to cancer prevention, detection, and treatment into clinical and population settings, where they can be tested and evaluated. The CCC is an integral part of an elite network of only 42 NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers nationally and is supported by a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG). More than 230 faculty and other academic staff from all four schools are members of the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The Investigational Trials Resource (ITR) is a shared resource for all UCSF investigators and supports cancer clinical trials. The ITR has a Clinical Research Support Office (CRSO) which is responsible for all the regulatory management of clinical studies: protocol development for investigator sponsored trials (IST’S); submissions to the UCSF Committee on Human Research (CHR) for both pharmaceutical and investigator sponsored trials, and submissions to the FDA for investigator Investigational New Drug (IND’s) applications.
The IND Safety Coordinator/Regulatory Affairs Specialist supports investigators with regulatory submissions to the CHR, FDA and other regulatory committees/agencies as required and processes and maintains records of post approval reporting of pharmaceutical IND Safety Reports, Investigator Brochures, and other Safety Related documents. The IND Safety Coordinator/Regulatory Affairs Specialist will work with the CRSO regulatory staff to ensure timely reporting and that informed consent changes are submitted to UCSF Committee on Human Research (CHR).
The IND Safety Coordinator/Regulatory Affairs Specialist will maintain a database of all received IND safety reports by drug/ date and manufacturer number and provides this information to the Regulatory Affairs Specialist for all annual reviews. In addition the IND Safety Coordinator/Regulatory Affairs Specialist will complete data entry and document upload into the HDFCCC electronic database, real-time filing of all regulatory approvals, and post-approval document dissemination to study team and works with the Clinical team to review IND safety letters as needed for pharmaceutical companies and internal/external auditors to review.
