ABOUT THE RESEARCH ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The Research Advisory Committee (RAC) supports the Associate Chair of Research in leading, facilitating and motivating research within our Department. The Committee consists of faculty representation from each Division, as well as the Surgeon Scientist Program and Surgical Research Methodology Program in Surgical Foundations. The RAC is the liaison between the Department Research Leadership and the Divisions, both informing the ACR of research activity within each Division as well as communicating and implementing the decisions and direction of the ACR/Research Executive to Divisional Faculty. They provide guidance to their Divisional researchers in order to develop strong research programs and collaborations.
