International Scientific Steering Committee (ISSC)

The International Scientific Steering Committee (ISSC) acts a scientific coordinating body for IHEC, and is comprised of lead scientists on funded projects and principal scientific leaders in the field of epigenetics.

This group interacts frequently to assess progress, address arising issues of a scientific nature, and encourage exchange of the best protocols and practices. Toward this end, ISSC establishes temporary or permanent subcommittees to complete focused tasks, including the establishment of assay and quality standards.  ISSC serves to facilitate data dissemination to the scientific community.
