  1. aBecause participants could “check all that apply,” the sum of all categories exceeds the number of accounts that participated (i.e., some participants selected multiple responses)
  2. bRecords include studies for which the organization was listed as the “lead sponsor” and the study was conducted in the USA; that is, we excluded records for which the principal investigator (PI) was the “lead sponsor,” and we excluded studies done outside the USA
  3. cTwo accounts selected both an “NCI cancer center” and an “Other cancer center”; thus, 97 accounts were affiliated with a cancer center
  4. d “Other schools” include: school of public health (N = 59, 16%), school of social work (N = 41, 11%), school of arts and sciences (N = 56, 15%), school of nursing (N = 72, 20%), school of dentistry (N = 40, 11%)
