The Center is administered through the School of Medicine, as a Division in the Department of Medicine. Dr. Farquhar directed the Center from its inception through 1997. Dr. Fortmann was appointed Center Director in 1998 and in May of 2010 retired.  Dr. John P.A. Ioannidis is the Director, and Ms. Chris Scholberg, the Director of Finance and Administration. The broad scope of the Center requires knowledge and skills from many different academic disciplines, and scientists and professionals from several Departments and Schools in the University are involved, as well as investigators in other institutions.

SPRC houses an Outpatient Clinical Research Facility, the Health Improvement Program, and the Stanford Health Promotion Network. The Clinical Research Facility includes examination and procedure rooms, phlebotomy stations, shower and dressing facilities for clinic participants, treadmill and bicycle exercise stations, oxygen consumption analysis equipment, and a blood processing area.

SPRC operates additional clinical research sites. SPRC research projects are also conducted in the Stanford University Hospital General Clinical Research Center and at schools and community centers throughout the Bay Area.
