Who else is overseeing my clinical research? Clinical research professionals routinely interact with IRB and IBC, but what other committees are reviewing research? In this Webinar we will delve into the role and function of Data Monitoring Committees (DMC/DSMB) and Endpoint Adjudication Committees (EAC/CEC). These committees are increasingly best practice to provide an independent, expert evaluation of clinical trial events and an unbiased adjudication to determine if certain clinical trial events have been met.

Upon completion of this Webinar, attendees should be able to understand and identify:

  1. The basic Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) guidelines governing when DMCs and EACs should be considered for clinical trials
  2. The role of the DMC and EAC and how their oversight is different from the institutional review board (IRB)
  3. Why independence of the DMC and EAC from the sponsor/CRO is critical to eliminating the perception of bias
