Life Sciences Consortium
The Life Sciences Consortium (LSC) was formed in 2005 to bring together representatives of oncology pharmaceutical / biotechnology companies to advise the CEO Roundtable on Cancer about ways to enable research and development to deliver more effective oncology therapies to patients faster.
That advice led the CEO Roundtable on Cancer to create the independent, non-profit Project Data Sphere (PDS) in 2014 to provide a digital library-laboratory to share, integrate and analyze clinical trial data.
The LSC continues to advise the Roundtable and Project Data Sphere on issues common to companies engaged in cancer drug discovery and development that cannot be solved by any company alone.
Those issues include how to:
- Improve clinical trial delivery
- Help streamline the regulatory process
- Create a pre-competitive pool of intellectual property that all may use for discovery and development
