Structure and Governance of VISTA

A VISTA Program Steering Committee (PSC) composed of the Principal Investigators of the participating Clinical Research Centers and representatives of IAVI and Emory oversees the program. IAVI’s Scientific Advisory Committee provides strategic and scientific advice. The charter for the PSC is being developed. The Scientific Strategy Group (SSG) identifies and further develops the scientific goals and plan, and is responsible for implementation. The program will include several projects and project teams.
