Governance

The Human Cell Atlas comprises members from many scientific institutions around the world. It is only by working together that we will be able to achieve the ambitious goals of this project.

The HCA is steered and governed by an Organizing Committee (OC), which is the decision-making body of the HCA. The OC is co-chaired by Aviv Regev and Sarah Teichmann.

The OC has an Executive Committee (EC) that is responsible for performing routine tasks between OC meetings, reviewing meeting agendas, and providing guidance to the HCA Executive Office.
