YCC IIT Advisory Committee

The YCC IIT Advisory Committee is charged with the reviewing all cancer and cancer-related, investigator-initiated, clinical trials proposed at Yale. The IIT Advisory Committee has a two-phased review. The initial review is at the concept level. This review should be done as soon as an Investigator begins considering an IIT. The second review is after the protocol is developed. The IIT Advisory Committee’s review encompasses the project’s scientific impact, proposed design, participant enrollment and impact on local patient needs, as well as considerations for engagement of external funders and collaborators, financial factors, and regulatory implications.

The IIT Advisory Committee functions to assign Investigators resources to support development of IIT protocols, and corresponding protocol documents, as well as to connect investigators to staff who will assist in the regulatory, administrative, and operational steps towards trial initiation.
