The University of Colorado Cancer Center's central administrative and organizational structure is housed within the University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver). CU Denver consists of the downtown campus in Denver and the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, where the CU Cancer Center administrative offices are located.
CU Denver provides a central authority to focus and organize our efforts and resources for the efficient and synergistic accomplishment of center goals.
The Colorado Multiple Institutional Review Board (COMIRB) located on both campuses provides office support for the five institutional review board (IRB) panels and processes protocols submitted for review under the expedited or exempt process. This board is used for all CU Cancer Center clinical protocols.
Also housed within the University of Colorado Denver is the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI). In partnership with the CU Cancer Center, CCTSI co-funds and manages common Shared Resources; in turn reducing duplication and overhead while providing higher quality service for our members.
The CU Cancer Center is a major user of the enhanced clinical and translational infrastructure in the CCTSI's Clinical and Translational Research Centers (CTRCs), particularly for Phase I trials.
Additionally, the majority of the CU Cancer Center's Shared Resources and many of our members are from the health sciences schools and colleges are located on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
