Vedat Sar, MD, Committee Chair
The ISSTD Scientific Committee was formed in 2012. The larger ISSTD Scientific Advisory Board was also formed to support the Scientific Committee during that same year. By way of some history – a precursor of this Committee was the former Internationalization Committee. Several members of this Committee joined the Scientific Committee or the Advisory Board. Some of them have subsequently been elected to the ISSTD Board. Hence, the efforts of these people and the Scientific Committee have served the long term ISSTD goal of becoming a truly international/global organization.
