Clinical Treatment Unit/Clinical Trials Processing Lab

The Clinical Treatment Unit and the Clinical Trials Processing Laboratory Shared Resources (CTU/CTPLSR) enable OSUCCC–James investigators to conduct successful Phase I and Phase II clinical translational research in a methodologically sound, expedient and cost-effective manner.

The CTU, an ambulatory Phase I Unit in The James, specializes in treating early clinical trial patients who require intense monitoring or complex correlative sample collection and processing. 

The CTPL enhances research quality by providing dedicated staff for high-volume procurement, processing, storage, delivery and shipment of research specimens critical to the correlative studies component of OSUCCC clinical trials.

The CTU/CTPLSR experts work closely with other OSUCCC–James Shared Resources, including the Clinical Trials Office, Pharmacoanalytical, Leukemia Tissue Bank and Biorepository and Biospecimen Shared Resources. These collaborations provide protocol review and feasibility assessment, specimen kit assembly, and specimen distribution to internal and external research laboratories.
