Tooting Our Own Horn

Recently, during a staff meeting, we were reflecting on the great work many of our clients do and how our involvement has been critical to their success.

It dawned on us that maybe we need to toot our own horn every now and then. So, here is the first in a series of Vector Talent Resources success stories.

NIH’s Cancer Trials Support Unit

For many years, the Vector team has been involved in several projects for this prestigious client—specifically in providing developers and other technical personnel in support of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH’s) Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU).

CTSU was established in 1999 as a “one-stop shop” for National Cancer Institute (NCI) researchers to make the NCI Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) clinical trial research program more effective and efficient. CTSU supports many NCI-funded networks and clinical trials of all phases and types: cancer treatment, prevention and control, advanced imaging, and correlative science studies.

NIH has operated CTSU since day one, collaborating with the NCI and its funded organizations to design, develop, implement, and support operational processes and informatics solutions that have reduced the administrative burden and costs of clinical sites.

Today, CTSU is an integrated platform used by both researchers and health care providers. Since CTSU’s inception, more than 280,000 patients have enrolled in NCI CTEP protocols using CTSU’s vast array of services and superior infrastructure.

The Challenge & the Solution

CTSU was struggling to secure the appropriate talent to fulfill its lofty mission. So, its team reached out to us: a trusted partner in providing value-based human capital solutions.

We listened carefully to fully understand CTSU’s mission, people, and goals. Our team jumped into action and delivered a totally integrated staffing solution that allowed CTSU to achieve its objectives—on time and within budget.

We are grateful for this opportunity to be of service to such a great client, whose mission ultimately benefits us all.
