Project Management

Management of the SSGCID is overseen by a Scientific Leadership Team comprised of the primary PI (from Seattle Children's Research Institute) and the PIs from the sub-contracting institutions (University of Kansas, University of Washington, Hampton University, Washington University in St. Louis, and Washington State University), with the assistance of an overall Program Manager and Site Managers at SCRI, KU, HU, WuStL, and UW (see the SSGCID management structure and organizational chart).

Activities within the SSGCID project are divided into seven teams distributed between the sites:

  • Project Management Team
  • IT & Data Management Team
  • Target Selection Team
  • Cloning & Expression Testing Team
  • Protein Production Team
  • Crystallization Team
  • Data Collection & Structure Solution Team

An advisory board called the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) makes recommendations on efficiently generating protein structures in a high throughput environment, provides advice on the structural genomics needs of the scientific community, makes recommendations on hot targets to pursue and also approves targets selected internally by the SSGCID bioinformatics team for entry into the pipeline.

The members of the SAB have been recruited from among eminent scientists outside of the SSGCID and include members that provide a broad geographical and domain representation of the relevant scientific community. They represent individuals from industry and academic institutions in the US and Europe, as well as developing countries that face a disproportionate burden from infectious disease.
