IEEE is able to provide a wide diversity of expertise, information, and resources that are related to health and to the life sciences. This expertise, however, is often distributed across many organizations, thus posing challenges for integrating the expertise and collaboration among organizations. One of the important functions of the Life Sciences Technical Community (LSTC) is its ability to bring together expertise from the various IEEE societies and organizations and have these entities work as a whole.
