External Advisory Committee
The Center's External Advisory Committee (EAC) reviews individual components of the Center, collaborative activity, the Pilot Project program, and the Center's new initiatives. Its primary function is to provide advice and objective quality control and to stimulate internal debate of the Center's efficacy. Center faculty members and other investigators are invited to the annual EAC meetings to address specific agenda items and provide recommendations.
The EAC is comprised of scientists who have outstanding expertise in environmental health science and in designing and implementing large multidisciplinary centers, including directing other NIEHS Centers for Environmental Health.
