The NCI Breast Cancer Steering Committee (BCSC) was established in September 2008.

Mission Statement

The BCSC functions to coordinate an efficient, cost-effective, science-driven, and transparent process that will identify and promote the "Best Science" in breast cancer clinical research by addressing the design and prioritization of phase 3 and large phase 2 trials in breast cancer.
