CTSI External Advisory Committee

CTSI External Advisory Committee

The EAC members participate in annual on-site meetings, review CTSI programs, and assess whether milestones for the CTSI and its individual programs have been achieved. The EAC reviews our programs and provides guidance and suggestions pursuant to recent progress, new programmatic directions, leadership, and other areas that emerge between meetings. Our presentation to the EAC is comprehensive and includes data and metrics on every program, planned changes, and problems encountered/solutions utilized, as well as highlights associated with each program. The EAC provides a written report that is shared with the NIH and CTSI institutional leadership.
