Overview of the program and role:

The Stratified Medicine Program (SMP) at CRUK was launched in 2015 to screen non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients across the UK for genetic changes that would make them eligible for a national precision medicine trial involving molecular-targeted therapies. The program comprises a network of 22 NHS hospitals where patients may consent to having residual lung cancer biopsy material sent to one of 3 molecular testing laboratories for analysis and identification of gene mutations relevant to NSCLC. Patients who match molecular and clinical criteria may then be asked if they would agree to participate in the national precision medicine trial for NSCLC.

The Clinical Project Manager is responsible for ensuring that patient consent and sample collection is carried out efficiently and effectively across the SMP network. They will work with participating clinical hubs to manage the infrastructure and delivery of the work associated with collecting tumour samples for molecular analysis and recruitment of patients to the NSCLC trial. They will collect key performance indicators across the network and provide support when needed for optimisation of local processes related to SMP. This will include the submission and processing of amendments, documenting protocol deviations, and maintaining a master events log. The Clinical Project Manager will also play a central role in budget management for the clinical hubs, which involves collaboration with the finance team at CRUK.

The Clinical Project Manager will work closely with the SMP team in a highly collaborative manner to ensure that the overall Program objectives are delivered.
