External Advisory Committee
The External Advisory Committee is comprised of leaders in the field of clinical and translational science, CTSA PIs, and experts in minority health and health disparities research. Members meet twice a year, once in person and once via conference call to offer visionary direction, make recommendations about the Institute’s scope, purpose, and progress; and, help integrate Miami CTSI initiatives, policies, and procedures with those of NCATS and NIMHD.
