Biomedical science decision-making bodies
For details of the remit, standard terms of reference and membership of the biomedical science committees please select a committee from the menu below.
There are nine Expert Review Groups which together constitute a body of internationally renowned researchers with high level expertise and experience across the disciplines relevant to the Trust's biomedical remit. These Groups are responsible collectively for assessing and shortlisting Investigator Award and senior level fellowship applications. Details of the remits of the Expert Review Groups and management of conflicts of interest can be found here. We recognise that some applications may span more than one ERG remit or be multidisciplinary. The Trust will ensure that these applications are considered by the most appropriate Group on the basis of science and expertise.
