Scope of Work

The Jill and John Freidenrich Center for Translational Research (FCTR) is the home for innovative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary clinical and translational research at the School of Medicine and the University. This 30,690 square foot building is the centerpiece in which the two most important clinical and translational research (CTR) programs at Stanford come together to enhance clinical research: the NCI-designated Cancer Center and the NCRR-supported Center for Clinical and Translational Education and Research (Spectrum). The co-location of support resources for the two centers greatly increases the efficiency and synergy by creating an interactive environment for the investigators and research support professionals involved in clinical and translational research. Moreover, these interdisciplinary research teams are now in close proximity to the Stanford Clinical and Translational Research Unit (CTRU), the facility where interactions with human subjects take place, which was built to OSHPD 3 standards and is located on the first floor in the building.
