Scientific quality and feasibility are part of ethics review by Institutional Review Boards (IRBs). Scientific Review Committees (SRCs) were proposed to facilitate this assessment by the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) SRC Consensus Group. This study assessed SRC feasibility and impact at CTSA-affiliated academic health centers (AHCs).
Philip Cola, PhD, CTSC Regulatory Knowledge Support lead and Associate Director of Academic Affairs Doctor of Management Programs at CWRU Weatherhead School of Management was part of the CTSA SRC Consensus Group. The group published their findings in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science.
