The NH-INBRE External Advisory Committee (EAC) is comprised of senior scientists with extensive administrative experience and personal interest in the NIH IDeA program and undergraduate education. Additionally, EAC members have expertise in the scientific research themes of NH-INBRE. The EAC meets semiannually and consults with the NH-INBRE PI, Dr. Green, informally multiple times during the year and thus provides strategic input and guidance to the PI and the Steering Committee on scientific, administrative, and research program issues. The Members of the NH-INBRE External Advisory Committee are listed below with their institutions, focus areas and positions.
