The External Advisory Committee (EAC) consists of five internationally recognized scientists with expertise in cellular metabolism, cardiovascular biology, cancer biology, and immunology. Most importantly, they are senior investigators who look at science broadly and are committed to mentoring.
The EAC will meet biannually and provide opportunities for interactions with and evaluation of COBRE participants, including the research project leaders, Core Directors and mentors.
