Protocol Review Committee

The membership of the Protocol Review Committee (PRC) has been designed to provide broad representation from the various oncology subspecialties, including community oncology, and support areas critical to the success of a clinical research enterprise. This broad representation is necessary to provide high quality and thorough protocol review. All members of the PRC are full voting members. The Co-Directors of the Cancer Center are ex officio members. The committee meets monthly. See a detailed schedule of committee meeting dates.
