Data & Safety Monitoring Committee
The Data & Safety Monitoring Committee
The Data & Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMC) oversees all aspects of data auditing, verify data validity and integrity, and ensure the safety of participants in all cancer clinical trials, including institutionally sponsored, investigator authored trials, and those trials without external monitoring that are active at SCI. All cancer clinical trials require auditing commensurate with the degree of risk involved in the study subject participation, as well as the size and complexity of the study.
The DSMC audits all investigator-initiated research, and reviews safety reports (grade 3 and above), and protocol deviations for all SCI studies.
