ON-line Collaborative Research Environment (OnCore)
The Clinical Trials Office uses OnCore to administer all clinical trial requirements. OnCore is a highly secure, web-based system providing fully integrated clinical trials data management and study administration capabilities.
OnCore provides centralized oversight of all protocols open at Wilmot and facilitates tracking of the protocol timeline, accrual management and real-time accrual reporting. OnCore is an ongoing collaborative effort with many National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer centers. This Clinical Trials Management System significantly improves and expands the scope of the CTO’s function by facilitating patient reporting, protocol compliance, data management and statistical analysis.
Office for Human Subject Protection
The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) at the University of Rochester provides a coordinated process where various components of the University work together to protect the rights, dignity, welfare, and privacy of human research subjects at UR (and its regional locations) by adhering to the highest ethical standards and complying with applicable federal and state regulations and institutional policies. All human subject research conducted or supported by employees or agents of Wilmot Cancer Institute fall under this program.
The program promotes a culture of compliance with regulatory and ethical guidelines and awareness of federal regulations under OHRP, the FDA, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules29. The University of Rochester’s HRPP has been accredited by the Association for Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) since July of 2007.
