Organizational Structure

The CISNET administrative structure includes the ten cancer site working groups, the information management center, the steering committee, the model accessibility workgroup, and the Junior Investigators Career Enhancement (JUICE) Program. Most projects are completed within the cancer site-specific working groups. The steering committee sets overall consortium policies and recommendations. The information management center runs the consortium members Web site, and developed and maintains the CISNET model documentation. The Model Accessibility Workgroup coordinates activities to disseminate modeling results, model runs, and software (when possible) to the scientific community. The JUICE Program plans and creates opportunities to facilitate the professional enhancement of CISNET junior investigators.
