Clinical Imaging Steering Committee Roster

The Clinical Imaging Steering Committee (CISC) serves as a forum for the extramural imaging and oncology communities to provide strategic input to the NCI regarding its significant investment in imaging activities in clinical trials. It provides valuable imaging expertise for other steering committees' evaluations of therapeutic concepts and discussions that include an imaging component. The CISC's membership comprises NCTN group representatives, NCI-funded consortia representatives, community oncologists, biostatisticians, patient advocates, subject matter experts, and NCI staff.
