Clinical Trials and Information Management Services (CTIMS)
The CTIMS project has been responsive to a variety of the Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) needs and can be effectively divided into two parts: Task I provides information support and database administration to the staff of the Clinical Investigations and other branches of CTEP; Task II provides data management, statistical support, and operations office requirements for both extramural/intergroup and expanded access trials sponsored by CTEP. Both tasks assist CTEP in their central mission of coordinating and administering a complex and comprehensive program of clinical cancer research.
In addition, EMMES staff designs, creates and maintains a system of databases to track NCI-sponsored clinical trials and provides expert support for use of the CTEP Enterprise System. EMMES also provides Steering Committee support to assist in the development and review of Phase III concepts
