The mission of the Data and Safety Monitoring System (DSMS) is to provide oversight to assure compliance with federal regulations, institutional policies and procedures and Good Clinical Practice in the conduct of all clinical research at UW Carbone Cancer Center.
The DSMS is comprised of one main committee, the Data and Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMC). It is responsible for the regular review and monitoring of all on-going clinical research in UWCCC. The Committee meets regularly to review quality assurance reports, including internal audits and response reviews, as well as protocol deviations and severe adverse events.
DSMC committee members are UWCCC faculty members who come from multiple disciplines with a breadth of experience in clinical, research and regulatory affairs.
