Study Activation and Conduct

The JCTO is dedicated to streamlining the process of study activation.  This section serves as a central resource for investigators and study teams to navigate the process more efficiently. In addition, you will find useful tools and information that have proven effective for other members of the research community.  The steps included here are required for industry-sponsored and industry initiated clinical trials. Some steps may not be necessary for clinical trials that are investigator initiated or led by a cooperative group or academic medical center. The study activation checklist provides a simple way to track your progress. 

The diagram above illustrates the components of the study activation process that require completion by the investigator or study team. 

Additionally, there are various other resources available in the Researcher’s Toolbox
