Collaborating with the GPC - Research Opportunity Assessment

The GPC supports a variety of collaboration opportunities for investigators and researchers ranging from feasibility counts and de-identified data to grant support and patient recruitment for trials. Each collaboration opportunity is unique and your next steps depend on your desired outcomes.

Our process begins with a Research Opportunity Assessment (ROA). Please see the requirements and different courses of action below.

Key requirements for collaboration:

  • Have either faculty status at a GPC institution OR have identified a GPC faculty collaborator to work with
    • If you need to identify a GPC faculty collaborator for your study/project, complete this form to begin your request.
  • Have funding support identified
    • Projects in the planning/LOI stage may still be submitted for consideration if the associated study protocol and draft budget are in an advanced stage of development
  • Have preliminarily identified which GPC sites would be ideal for your study
  • Can provide the following information for review by the GPC's ROA Committee:
    • Project proposal
    • Project budget
    • Biosketch of requesting party/Principal Investigator
    • Documentation that a GPC faculty collaborator has been identified (if applicable) and is willing to work with you on this project

If you are a returning GPC collaborator, please submit your information (inclusive of uploading the above referenced documents) on this form.

Following submission of the requested information, the Research Opportunity Assessment (ROA) Committee will review your proposal. You may be contacted during this process with questions and/or feedback regarding your proposed project.

Upon receiving preliminary approval by the ROA Committee, your project will be submitted to the GPC Governance Council for final review and approval.

If approved, you may proceed with feasibility queries (if applicable) so that participating GPC sites and project budgets can be finalized. Collaboration terms, including conditions for services, payment arrangements and authorship, will also be finalized upon approval of the project by the GPC Governance Council.

We look forward to working with you.
