Protocol Review Procedures

**All PRC Submissions should be completed via the OnCore system**

Protocols are submitted to PRC through OnCore.

  • All pharmaceutical and investigator-initiated protocols involving patients with cancer should receive a review by the PRC. NCI cooperative group protocols receive administrative review only.
  • Protocols will be managed depending on level of review. PRC Chair, with the assistance of the PRC coordinator, determines if protocol requires full committee review, if it’s eligible for administrative review, or if it requires no review by the PRC.
  • The PRC meets on the second Thursday and fourth Monday of every month, and the deadline for submission is noon two weeks prior to the meeting.
  • The PRC provides the outcome of review by a letter e-mailed to the investigator
  • Submission to the Institutional Review Board for Health Sciences Research will require a final approval letter from the PRC Chair.
