Effortlessly navigate the process with a single dedicated point of contact and get unprecedented access to board chairs for thought leadership, questions, and guidance. Dedicated U.S. and Canadian boards provide comprehensive IRB review in North America, with global research support opportunities also available. 

Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)

Get the assurance you need from an IBC services provider who has reviewed more human gene transfer clinical protocols than any other organization. Research institutions who partner with WCG benefit by becoming IBC-approved significantly faster with a customized biosafety SOP that transparently outlines each step, including compliance activities related to gene transfer research. Sponsor and CRO partners can expedite their startup approach for sites requiring IBC review with an extensive, trusted site network (nearly 700 sites and counting).

Data Monitoring Committee (DMC)

Committee experience and quality of statistical analyses are key to effective Data Monitoring Committees (also called Data Safety Monitoring Boards). Over 1,200 medical, statistical, and safety specialists with deep expertise in data and clinical trial conduct stand ready to serve as DMC members and/or expert advisors in your clinical development process. Meanwhile, innovative statistical and programming techniques deliver comprehensive reporting and actionable recommendations that fuel pipeline development. 

 Endpoint Adjudication Committee (EAC)

Don’t just benefit from a network of 1,200+ global experts; get a hand-assembled Endpoint Adjudication Committee (also called Clinical Endpoint Committee) that’s perfectly matched to optimize your specific trial. Purpose-built adjudication technology simultaneously streamlines and improves adjudication management, with an average adjudicator decision posted within 5 days of document submission. Enhance trial integrity, mitigate risks, and ensure participant safety and trial efficacy by achieving consistent, global data collection, catching safety issues early on, assessing risk with event findings, and more.
