The CTRU Director, Branimir I. (Brandy) Sikic, M.D., is directly responsible for the conduct of the inpatient and outpatient clinical investigation.

He, in turn, is responsible to the Principal Investigator, Harry B. Greenberg, M.D., Director, Spectrum, Senior Associate Dean, Research and Training and the Joseph D. Grant Professor in the School of Medicine.

The Advisory Committee meets on a monthly basis and has, as its primary function, consideration of the quality of the clinical research being performed on the CTRU. In addition, it considers general policies, common needs, resource allocations, patient admission policies, and fiscal and administrative matters. In its advisory capacity, once a consensus has been reached, the administrative officers of the CTRU act as agents for implementing the intent of the Committee.
