Letter of Support

There are two types of letters of support (LOS) from the PCRC, 1) letters for PCRC Members; and 2) support letters for planned collaborators. PCRC Members may seek an LOS to support a promotion, K-award or other similar request. If you have had a project reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee (SRC) or if your project has been reviewed by the SRC with resources identified and a budget, you may request a LOS.

LOS STANDARD LANGUAGE

To demonstrate mutual collaboration to work together, all Letters of Support include language for which collaborators agree to adhere:

  • To follow PCRC standards & processes in their project including Use of Measurement Instruments & Standard Data Elements, Participation in Study Participant Registry, Data Sharing Agreements, & Financial Management Processes;
  • That all Letters of Intent (LOI) and protocols will be reviewed by the PCRC Scientific Review Committee to ensure highest methodological standards;
  • That all publications will adhere to the PCRC authorship guidelines to ensure consistent approaches to assigning authorship; and
