The goals of the Recruitment, Outcomes and Assessment Resource (ROAR) are to develop resources for population and clinical/transitional research that can enhance collaborative, multidisciplinary population research; enable observational, behavioral, clinical translation and interventional studies; and avoid inefficiency in the development and execution of these studies. The ROAR, which is led by Dr. Karen Glanz, is comprised of three interdigitated and coordinated components: The Research Implementation Component(RIC), the Recruitment, Retention and Outreach Component (RROC), and the Tumor Tissue and Biosample(TTAB) Component.
The purpose of the RIC is to facilitate the initiation and execution of patient-oriented research studies. Services provided by the RIC include:
The purpose of the RROC is to provide assistance with development and implementation of recruitment and retention plans and materials. Services provided by the RROC include:
The purpose of TTAB is to provide a variety of services to support tissue biosampling. These services include sample preparation, aliquoting, database entry, quality assurance by a pathologist slide review to define lesion, amount of tumor and percent tumor necrosis in each aliquot collected as well as bar coding of samples. Services provided by TTAB include:
