The QCMRI Research Advisory Committee (RAC) membership is up to twelve members. RAC members have elected to serve in an honorary capacity and therefore receive no fees for their services on Committee.
Where external review of applications is required, the RAC will source reviewers and coordinate responses, and incorporate external comments into recommendations.
The overarching role of the QCMRI RAC is to scientifically review applications for QCMRI funding including taking into account the views of expert external reviewers. The RAC provides advice and recommendations to the Board for approval.
