SARC is a committee of experienced investigators, biostatisticians, and ethicists with feasibility input from CTRC core staff. The purpose of SARC is to evaluate the scientific merit of research protocols. All investigator-initiated protocols that have not received a full peer review are reviewed by SARC. NIH-funded protocols and other protocols that have received prior peer review undergo an expedited review process. However, if you make major scientific changes to a protocol post peer review, it will be reviewed by SARC.
