The VCCC is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) for service providers to support their Investigator-initiated Trial Capacity Building (IIT) Program. Providers with experience in providing clinical trial management and site management services are encouraged to provide a submission in response to the requirements.

The IIT Project is part of the Strategic Research Plan of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) and is it’s largest single investment with a budget of just over $8m with the aim to increase cancer patient accrual on clinical trials. The VCCC is investing a total of $20m in various clinical trial programs. The IIT program will provide resources to help more investigators to open and conduct a clinical trial and will significantly increase the number of investigator-initiated trials performed at VCCC sites.
