Scientific leadership at CIPSRT, which is led by its Scientific Directorate (SD), is composed of a multi-disciplinary team of Canadian researchers who provide strategic leadership and hold primary responsibility for oversight of all scientific activities at CIPSRT. The SD has a unique role in facilitating discussions among PSP leaders and scientific experts, all of whom rely on research evidence and careful consideration of the broad interests, values, and sources of knowledge (e.g., ethics, public opinion, history) from the scientific community.
