Research Advisory Committee

CUHI’s governance structure is intentionally designed to facilitate engagement amongst a variety of academic and non-academic stakeholders. The Research Advisory Committee (RAC) is responsible for ensuring the Centre develops, promotes and maintains high quality, rigorous and innovative research.  This committee is made up of academic, community and policy members and provides a key opportunity for engaging the various stakeholders in CUHI’s research directions.

The RAC is convened by the Director of Research for peer review of seed grant proposals, evaluation of CBR award submissions and to review applications for junior faculty buy-outs and post-doctoral fellowships.
