Developing Innovative Treatments for Pediatric Cancer Patients with REDCap Cloud EDC

“The REDCap Cloud platform allows for a lot of flexibility while providing an intuitive experience for study design and build. The REDCap Cloud Services team was instrumental in helping to implement our CRFs in the REDCap Cloud system. It was easy to work with them and during the development process we learned enough about the system to allow us to make further adjustments if needed in the future.”

Tamar Shlapobersky, Clinical Data Specialist, Stanford POETIC Data Coordinating Center


The Pediatric Oncology Experimental Therapeutics Investigators’ Consortium (POETIC) Data Coordinating Center was founded in 2003 at Memorial Sloan Kettering before transitioning to Stanford University in early 2020. In total, POETIC has completed 16 clinical trials through a network consisting of 11 leading academic medical centers.

Using a think tank model to encourage innovative collaboration among physicians and scientists, POETIC’s mission is to promote and accelerate with equity the early clinical development of promising therapies for the treatment of children, adolescents and young adults with cancer and related disorders. POETIC serves a geographically diverse patient population and aims to provide new cutting-edge treatment options to underserved populations.


POETIC and REDCap Cloud

POETIC is conducting the PARPAML study, a Phase 1 Protocol for Relapsed Pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML) to determine the safety and efficacy of the PARP Inhibitor talazoparib in combination with conventional chemotherapy.

In rare disease studies like this one, many sites are involved in enrollment and treatment. It’s critical to have a compliant, easy to use EDC platform. REDCap Cloud provided the study leads access and implementation support to a system that meets the highest regulatory standards.
