The Scientific Review Committee is intended to provide study design, analytic planning and operational feasibility peer review of clinical research before review by the Institutional Review Board.
The committee's mission is to ensure that all research projects involving humans at VCU meet acceptable standards of scientific rigor and feasibility without obstructing institutional efficiency and timeliness. The mission supports Theme II of VCU's strategic plan, Quest 2025, which aims to "distinguish VCU as a preeminent urban public research university by growing areas of strength as researchers, innovators and educators."
The formation of a Scientific Review Committee at VCU places the university in alignment with the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences’ vision of the future that is currently being adopted by other leading research universities.
