Internal Advisory Committee

Our Internal Advisory Committee consists of equal representation of well-respected, senior investigators with expertise in basic, clinical, translational and population-based research, as well as training and education at both UPR and MDACC.

The IAC constitutes the main organizational structure that provides internal advice to the PIs. This committee also evaluates the progress of all projects, programs and cores, as well as provides recommendations for establishing overall priorities, changing directions, and identifying new areas of opportunity.
