Protocol Review and Monitoring Committee (PRMC)

A Protocol Review and Monitoring Committee is required for all National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer centers. NCI policies state that the purpose of a PRMC is to review, at a minimum, all the research studies in areas of diagnosis, therapy, prevention and control of cancer that have not received traditional peer review for scientific merit. A PRMC also provides a mechanism for monitoring all cancer research studies in this institution for scientific progress, carrying with it the authority for closing any studies that are not meeting accrual or performance standards.
