By Applied Clinical Trials
Quorum Review IRB is introducing a new ethics board located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This panel includes members from academia with significant expertise in oncology research. The Cambridge Board will begin reviewing studies on October 4, 2011.  Quorum will continue to hold eight board meetings each week.      

Oncology is a complex, fast-moving, and innovative area of clinical research. With this panel, researchers can benefit from IRB members with years of experience in oncology treatment and research. Quorum’s broad range of therapeutic expertise will also be supported as members are affiliated with a range of institutions, including Harvard Medical School, Dana Farber, Tufts, and Boston University.

The Cambridge Board will meet weekly. Researchers may also submit oncology studies to the next available Board meeting, as Quorum always includes oncology expertise on a panel when a cancer study is presented for review.
