S. path to putting a man on the moon involved putting a Rhesus monkey into orbit. The monkey was watched and probed intently and studied from every angle. Evenings and weekends, in the absence of human observers, a dozen or more recorders kept track of the monkey’s temperature, blood pressure, and other vital readings. Only no one looked at the output. The monkey was in orbit before the earth-bound observers noticed he was running a fever. Yes, the monkey died. A typical set of clinical trials today costs what that wasted spaceshot did in the 1950s.

Procrastinators need not apply. Two physicians, one to concentrate on measures of efficacy, the other on safety. Both should be specialists in the area under investigation. As the two are intended to provide differing and, sometimes, conflicting points of view, they cannot be in a mentor-student or a supervisor-employee relationship. Both will be expected to CHAPTER 4 STAFFING FOR SUCCESS 19 interpret final results and sign off on reports to the regulatory agencies. 4 As discussed in the next chapter, they will be expected to provide assistance in determining what information is to be collected and how measurements are to be made and interpreted.

They will participate in literally all phases of the study. Monitors must like to travel and be able to remain away from home for extended periods (they will have to remain in the field for training and perhaps to see the first several patients through the trial process at each site). They must have excellent communication skills and be able to maintain emotional as well as intellectual empathy with physicians and their assistants.
