The research priorities of the Cancer Center cut across and align with three main research programs – one of which is the Cancer Population Sciences (CPS). To assist with the development, implementation and future publication of CPS work, the UF Health Cancer Center has the availability of a CPS Navigator to assist with cancer-relevant research.
In response to the 2017 requirement for all cancer-related research to undergo review by the Scientific Review and Monitoring Committee (SRMC), in 2019, the CRO established a designated Cancer Population Science (CPS) Navigator to assist investigators with navigating study activation and ongoing review processes while simultaneously fostering working relationships across each of the CPS investigator’s study teams and staff.
Based in the UF Health Cancer Center Clinical Research Office (CRO), the primary role of the CPS Navigator is to “navigate” investigators and their study teams completing CPS-related research. This includes but is not limited to the following: 1) regulatory and ancillary committee review process; 2) work with the PI and their study team to maximize accrual opportunities (in the clinics and community); and 3) connect investigators and their study teams to available resources within the cancer center, and general research community, to meet the needs of completing a research project from start-up to publication.
