Protocol Review and Monitoring






Cancer Center Protocol Review Staff Contact - Meha Singh, MS



Cancer Center Protocol Review Committee (CC-PRC), in cooperation with the UIC Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and the Office for the Protection of Research Subjects, provides for the scientific review of all cancer-related protocols annually. Twenty-one individuals from multiple oncology and health care disciplines serve as members of the Committee. This diverse composition assures a multidisciplinary approach to protocol review. 

Cancer Center Protocol Review Committee replaces the departmental review.

A comprehensive scientific review is conducted for all new protocols initiated by UIC investigators and for all industry sponsored protocols. New cancer clinical trial protocols supported by NIH mechanisms that have already undergone peer review are reviewed for feasibility and prioritization.

The protocol submission forms have been updated in the past year.  The links below will take you directly to the appropriate forms, instructions for the forms, procedures and meeting schedule.
