Recruitment, Outcomes, and Assessment Resource (ROAR)
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
- 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.
