Steering Committee


The PHUSE Steering Committee provides oversight to the Working Groups, as well as developing content for the annual Computational Science Symposium. At a high level, the Steering Committee:

  • monitors Working Groups and their associated projects, making sure projects are aligned across groups, facilitates cross-Working-Group collaborations, and provides an escalation path for any needs
  • reviews new project requests and evaluates against the overall mission of the collaboration
  • establishes and facilitates working relationships with external organisations (CDISC, the FDA, TransCelerate, etc.)
  • reviews project deliverables to ensure content is appropriate, facilitates hand-off, and supports maintenance of deliverables that will be leveraged by other organisations
  • supports open and transparent communications within and across the Working Groups, as well as to the PHUSE and industry memberships.

Each Working Group is led by a team designed to provide oversight for all projects within the Working Group, ensuring projects are aligned with the overall goals of the PHUSE collaboration and that objectives are being met in a timely manner and that support is being provided for project leaders.

Each project has one or more leaders responsible for leading the project, scheduling meetings, working with the project team to meet objectives and for providing updates to the Working Group leadership team. These leaders form part of the Steering Committee, together with industry at large members.

Already a member but not sure how you can benefit?

PHUSE is an expanding, global society with a global membership of clinical data scientists. It requires a large pool of resources to help with its running, and so there are many opportunities for members to become involved. Whether it's chairing a conference, presenting at an event, leading a working group or contributing to the quarterly online newsletter, we are always keen to hear from volunteers.
