In response to the recent increases in oncology research conducted in North America, Schulman Associates IRB will offer a weekly board meeting of the new Schulman Oncology Board, dedicated to the review of oncology research, beginning July 23.
The new board's membership consists of a variety of oncology experts, who were carefully recruited from prestigious, nationally recognized research centers, and specifically selected based on their qualifications. Concentrations include pediatric oncology, radiation oncology, oncology research administration and more.
Oncology Board members will also lend their expertise to Schulman's regular Board meetings, as needed. Additional submission materials are not required to take advantage of the Oncology Board's services. Review turnaround times for the Oncology Board will remain consistent with Schulman's standard, competitive timelines.
"This enhanced Board expertise and dedicated additional Board meeting underscore Schulman's commitment to growth and improvement," said Michael Woods, Schulman's president and CEO. "We are delighted to be able to offer an unsurpassed level of service and expertise to our clients who are working to develop new cancer therapies and diagnostics."
The Oncology Board will review both industry-sponsored research as well as federally funded research. As with Schulman's other review boards, the Oncology Board will oversee research conducted at universities, hospital systems, community practices and other research sites.
