Working Committees

Working Committees shape the observational research that leads to publications for the CIBMTR. Through 15 focused committees, volunteer members can propose, design, and implement studies. Working Committee studies are guided by Chairs who are experts in the relevant field and by Scientific Directors who are experienced transplant physicians with MS degrees in biostatistics or related fields. MS-level biostatisticians coordinate Working Committee activities and participate in individual studies, and Statistical Directors provide oversight. Investigators from around the world are currently participating in more than 100 CIBMTR studies. 


  • Membership is open to anyone willing to take an active role in developing and completing studies that involve CIBMTR data or resources. We encourage participation from the U.S. and international transplant centers.
