The purpose of the committee is to ensure the appropriateness of the clinical research conducted within MPOG and the rational use of MPOG resources. It is primarily the responsibility of the institution’s MPOG Site Principal Investigator / Research Champion to review all proposals before submission to the PCRC. At each monthly PCRC meeting, the PCRC reviews and votes on one or multiple new proposals brought forth by researchers at MPOG institutions. With this in mind, only colleagues from active MPOG sites may submit a research proposal to the PCRC for review.
The PCRC Moderator Committee is a rotating group of methodological and clinical content experts, who are familiar with MPOG research infrastructure. One member from the PCRC Moderator Committee will serve as moderator for all PCRC proposals presented on a specific date and will provide focused feedback to the study team(s).
Potential Voting Outcomes for PCRC Proposals
After presentation of a proposal and hearing the comments from the moderator and PCRC members, each institution present at the PCRC meeting will vote on the outcome of the proposal. Each institution present is allotted one vote per presentation, excluding the institution(s) presenting the proposal and institutions with named co-authors.
