The organizational leadership of SJLIFE centers around the activities of the Steering Committee comprised of the Co-Principal Investigators and chairs of the SJLIFE Working Groups. The SJLIFE Working Groups provide a forum for investigators to discuss new research ideas, as well as develop and design research proposals, grants, and protocols. The principal investigators meet individually and with the Working Groups of SJLIFE to discuss activities relating to the SJLIFE cohort.

Regularly scheduled meetings include: (a) weekly meeting with the Clinical Research Support and Study Coordinating teams; (b) weekly SJLIFE clinical rounds; (c) weekly meetings of the Cancer Center’s Cancer Control and Survivorship Investigators – where all SJLIFE-related research is presented and discussed relative to the research question and scientific merit, multi-disciplinary opportunities, feasibility, overlap, resource requirements, and timeline; (d) semi-monthly meetings to discuss SJLIFE statistical analyses; and (e) semi-monthly meetings of the seven SJLIFE Working Groups. In addition, the entire SJLIFE clinical and research team meet annually for the purpose of reviewing progress and strategic planning.
