The UFHCC recognizes that a common barrier to successful trial completion is inadequate resource allocation. As a steward of limited resources, the UFHCC Feasibility Group (FG) is responsible for reviewing or providing feedback on the non-scientific aspects of a study being considered. The goal is to assist PIs and DSGs in ensuring adequate institutional, financial, personnel and patient resources are available. The UFHCC FG provides this information as a required component of the UFHCC CRO-managed protocol development and as a consultant to other UFHCC investigators. The FG issues a recommendation of feasible or non-feasible for each study reviewed to supplement DSG decision making.
FG meets the first and third Wednesday of the month and submissions for review are due the week prior to the meeting date by 12:00 pm. Protocols and budget drafts should be submitted to Protocol_Activation@cancer.ufl.edu.
