Study review process

All cancer-related research proposals must be reviewed and approved by the VCU Massey Cancer Center Protocol Review and Monitoring System Committee prior to Institutional Review Board (IRB) submission.

Research studies subject to PRMC review include the following:

  • Studies involving patients with cancer, their families or their health care providers
  • Secondary data collected from cancer patients or their medical records
  • Cancer-related surveys (e.g., attitudes about risk, prevention and treatment) of the general population

If you are unsure whether PRMC review is required, please follow the submission process and submit to the PRMC at masseyPRMS@vcu.edu. You will be notified if review is not required.
