Services > DMC Services


CRAB provides the statistical and operational support required by Data Monitoring Committees (DMCs) or Data Safety Monitoring Boards (DSMBs). The Independent Statistical Center (ISC) creates and presents in-depth and insightful analyses and reports to support the DMC Members in timely decision-making.

CRAB Biostatisticians have decades of experience serving as the ISC, as well as members of the DMC. This experience has informed our approach to create well-organized and comprehensive reports.

CRAB Staff are responsive to the needs of the DMC. Regular and swift communication from CRAB Project Managers will ensure the DMC adheres to the charter.

CRAB will ensure data and documentation are securely stored and transferred. Access to the data and documentation is restricted by role in the DMC, and securely managed by a CRAB Sponsored Secure-FTP or through compliant software.
