ECG Database Committee
ECG data in the ECG warehouse are owned by the entities (generally pharmaceutical company sponsors) that submit ECGs in the course of drug development or post-market surveillance. Release of the ECG data to CSRC for additional analysis represents a collaborative effort of scientific good will on the part of the data owners. Within the CSRC, a Scientific Oversight Committee (SOC) has been formed to evaluate proposals for use of the released ECG data and to foster collaboration within the research community. Individual research protocols cleared by the SOC are approved by the Executive Committee.
Ensures CSRC organization is in concert with its charter mission. Oversees all committee activities, reviewing each committee’s recommendations. Has final decisionmaking responsibility for all activities and processes. Provides all in-kind and fiscal resources, or strategies and support for obtaining such resources, to facilitate each committee’s activities.
Sustains vitality of CSRC by recruiting new members and ensuring members have opportunities to participate and contribute to organization at every level. Serves as organizational center for determination of membership status of new applicants according to stipulations of membership charter. Provides means for replacement of committee leadership positions through formation of ad hoc nominations processes as needed.
Partnership Liaison Committee
Provides a ‘single point of contact’ at the CSRC for partner organizations. While these organizations are not members of the CSRC, they share the neutrality and patient-centered goals of the Consortium. Facilitates jointly-sponsored meetings and publications.
Scientific Oversight Committee
Serves as primary intellectual repository for solicitation, review, and ongoing oversight of all scientific projects and programs and makes recommendations on all directly to Executive Committee. Develops and facilitates research teams specifically dedicated to each approved research program.
Scientific Programs Committee
Organizes and provides logistical support for all CSRC-sponsored public meetings. Separate from other committees, its work is integrated to ensure appropriate topics are raised to Executive Committee for consideration from various CSRC groups. Reviews proposals for annual meetings, think tanks, and other public forums. Focuses on meetings that would likely catalyze other sustained efforts, such as white papers and research projects. Assists in forming specific working groups as needed to provide direction, guidance, administrative support, communications, and involvement with other facets of CSRC.
White Papers and Publications Committee
Organizes and provides logistical support for all CSRC-sponsored publications. Separate from other committees, its work is integrated to ensure appropriate topics are raised to SOC for consideration from various CSRC groups. Reviews proposals for white papers and similar publications. Focuses on topics that either emerge from or would likely catalyze other sustained efforts, such as research projects, public meetings, and programs. Assists in forming specific writing and reviewer groups as needed to provide direction, guidance, administrative support, communications, and involvement with other facets of CSRC. Reports through SOC.
