CRSS staffing for clinical trials at the Cancer Center is centrally managed, yet assigned to clinical programs where the CRSS staff members function as part of interdisciplinary teams under the direct leadership of their respective scientific investigators. In addition to the functions noted above, the CRSS is responsible for recruiting and training clinical research staff. Staff assignments are based upon accrual, utilizing a staffing ratio of approximately 30 to 40 patient accruals (therapeutic) to 1.0 full-time employee. Annual patient accrual of the Cancer Center for fiscal year 2001 exceeds 4,000, with more than 1,000 patients on therapeutic studies.

The CRSS provides single point-of-contact data management support for these cooperative groups to coordinate the Cancer Center's activities, thus ensuring timely and efficient institutional performance.
