Council Subcommittees and Working Groups
We establish subcommittees and ad hoc working groups of our Advisory Council to focus on specific topics of interest that relate to NCATS’ mission and translational sciences. These groups develop recommendations and guidance for discussion by the larger Advisory Council and consideration by NCATS and NIH leadership.
Advisory Council members may make up part or all of each subcommittee or working group. Subcommittees include primarily Advisory Council members and are considered standing committees of the Council that address long-term topics of interest. Outside experts must receive formal approval from the Department of Health and Human Services to participate on a subcommittee. Ad hoc working groups are created to address emerging needs of the Center. Unlike subcommittees, working groups come to an end at the completion of assigned tasks. Membership on working groups typically includes a mix of Advisory Council members and outside experts. All subcommittee or working group members are allowed to vote on actions of the group.
