External Advisory Committee

The long-term planning of the BMSR is assisted by the External Advisory Committee (EAC) that reviews annually all activities of the BMSR and advises the Resource Co-Directors on the pace of progress, operating procedures, computing facilities, and future directions. Their advice and recommendations have been valuable in shaping the course of the BMSR and maximizing the impact of our various activities for the benefit of the biomedical community at large.

Since its inception, the BMSR has benefited from the sage advice and guidance from a number of outstanding researchers who have served as members of the EAC. The members of this committee have all been highly knowledgeable in matters of biomedical modeling/simulation and recognized experts in the various domains of research represented in the BMSR. The members of the EAC have represented a broad range of scientific outlook, different regions of biomedical activity and training backgrounds.
