As a Research Project Associate (RPA) in the Department of Radiologys Tumor Response Assessment Program, you willsupports Oncologist, Radiologists, and Clinical Research Support Staff to assess how clinical research participants respond to a therapeutic drug. These assessments help determine whether a clinical research participant has improved, stayed the same, or worsened while receiving a therapeutic drug. As member of the tumor response assessment team, you will manage operations and coordinate the rollout of strategic projects that affect therapeutic clinical research trials. One major initiative we are rolling out at MSK is to use an electronic solution for completing these assessments. The application we utilize supports several hundred open clinical trials across MSK and promotes a standardized workflow that is compliant with regulatory requirements. Our team manages all aspects of this initiative, from coordinating and conducting in-service meetings to introduce the application, trial setup, assisting with training/education critical staff, maintaining day to day operations, and providing technical support to end users amongst other tasks. Additionally, as an integral member of the team, you will be involved in developing and implementing new initiatives that will directly impact clinical research trials within and across departments at MSK.
