Therefore, the application should include, and will be evaluated on the basis of, the following information:

  • a clear indication of the data requested, as well as a description of the research project and its underlying rationale
  • the analysis plan

All requests will be reviewed internally by a qualified panel of Menarini Group experts (Scientific Secretariat) and then passed to an Independent Review Committee (IRC) of external experts for further review.

Independent Review Committee’s (IRC) Members
