  • To build and refine the data commons with clinical, genomic, imaging, tissue, histology, and other data while maintaining the independence of the disease consortia for scientific direction
  • To include representative key stakeholders in advising the PCDC
  • To maintain the autonomy and scientific direction of the clinical disease consortia
