Clinical Trials Review Committee (CTRC) ◦ Reviews scientific integrity and feasibility for all University of Chicago cancer studies ◦ Looks at Scientific validity Coolness of study Scientific priority/accrual competition within disease program Interdepartmental collaboration arrangements University Research Administration (URA) ◦ Negotiates contract terms for ALL Clinical Trials Agreements (CTAs) ◦ Reviews study budget Adequacy of funding Items billed as standard of care (SOC) versus research Institutional Review Board (IRB) ◦ Protects the rights and welfare of human subjects ◦ Requires CTRC and URA approval prior to review Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) ◦ Reviews adverse events and ongoing data considerations Scientific and Accrual Monitoring (SAM) Committee ◦ Evaluates study accrual and progress towards study endpoints ◦ Can shut down study for not making adequate progress
Completing Conflict of Interest (COI) ◦ onflict_interest/ onflict_interest/ Completing CITI Research Training ◦ Citiprogram.org Amending the IRB submission to include you as a researcher
Radioisotopes and Radioactive Drugs Research Advisory Committee (RADRAC) ◦ Review, approval and surveillance of radioactive drugs as well as the purchase and use of radioisotopes in humans Nursing Research Committee (NRC) ◦ facilitate research that builds a scientific base for nursing practice and promotes the profession as a scientific discipline. Institutional Bio-safety Committee (IBC) ◦ Reviews biohazards, as defined as potentially infectious agents, organisms or materials, biological toxins, organisms containing recombinant DNA and other genetically altered organisms and agents, in laboratory and clinical settings. Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) ◦ Review, approval and surveillance of all research and teaching protocols involving the use of animals
The BSD requires training for all researchers per policy “Faculty and Staff Training Requirements for the Conduct of Clinical Research. ◦ Log onto the CITI website (www.citiprogram.org) to complete this training requirement.www.citiprogram.org AURA, the new electronic IRB submission and review system.
Collaboration with other institutions ◦ Study must be reviewed by all institutions involved Submit Protocol to the IRB ◦ All submissions should be routed using the University-wide IRB system, AURA.(http://aura.uchicago.edu/)http://aura.uchicago.edu/ Copies of cancer protocols and consents ◦ https://webres.uccrc.org/login/login_ad https://webres.uccrc.org/login/login_ad IRB Exemptions ◦ Still require an IRB submission Prospective research databases ◦ If patients are not consented, their data cannot be used in the analysis
