Structure: Working and Analysis Groups

Steering Committee

There is a steering committee (SC) composed of the PIs from all the partner groups

Members: Steve Bova, Daniel Brewer, Rob Bristow, Benedikt Brors, Géraldine Cancel-Tassin, Colin Cooper, Niall Corcoran, Olivier Cussenot, Ros Eeles, Chris Foster, Michael Fraser, Vincent Gnanapragasam, Nina Habermann, Vanessa Hayes, Chris Hovens, Jan Korbel, Theo Van Der Kwast, Max Loda, Yong-Jie Lu, Charlie Massie, Bernie Pope, Jüri Reimand, Chris Sander, Guido Sauter, Thorsten Schlomm, Tapio Visakorpi, David Wedge, Joachim Weischenfeldt

Chair: rotating

Working Groups

There are two subcommittees (working groups, WGs) which report to the steering committee

Technical Working Group

The technical WG is responsible for the data collation infrastructure and analysis mechanisms. There is a number of sub-working groups within the technical working group inclusing: Methylation, RNA, QC, and germline.

Chairs: David Wedge, Joachim Weischenfeldt, Bernie Pope.

Clinical and Pathology Working Group

The clinical and pathology WG is responsible for the clinical data dictionary structure and collation of clinical questions. It is also responsible for the creation of an international pathology review network and collation of pathology questions.

Chair: rotating

Analysis Groups

Analysis groups based around similar subprojects that have been proposed. This is so we can work together to produce high quality research and produce the optimal outcome from the data. The current analysis working groups are:

  • CombiMets (leads: Chris Hovens, Benedikt Brors)
  • Drivers and Functional Interpretation (leads: Juri Remand, David Wedge)
  • Ethnicity (leads:Vanessa Hayes, Oliver Cussenot)
  • Evolution (leads:David Wedge, Benedikt Brors)
  • Germline (leads:Ros Eeles, Geraldine Cancel-Tassin)
  • Mutational Processes (leads:Joachim Weischenfeldt, Juri Reimand)
  • Non Genomic Analyses (leads:Dan Brewer, Neil Corcoran)
  • Pathology and Genomics (leads:Massimo Loda, Rob Bristow)
  • Prognostic Markers (leads:Michael Fraser, Vincent Gnanapragasm)
  • Subtyping (leads:Dan Woodcock, Tony Papenfuss)
  • Methylation and Epigenomics (leads:Charlie Massie, Clarissa Gerhauser)
  • RNA analysis (leads:Tony Papenfuss, Luigi Marchionni)
  • Hypoxia and the Tumor Microenvironment (leads: David Wedge, Lena v. Voithenberg)
