imagesScientific Advisory Committee

The Scientific Advisory Committee advises the Governing Body on all medical and scientific matters relating to the Institute and its activities.  Its most important role is the selection of the annual Lister Institute Prize Fellows – see What are they? for details.  There are currently eleven members of the Scientific Advisory Committee providing expertise across a broad range of scientific and medical disciplines.  Members generally serve for six years and there is planned regular rotation, where their expertise is appropriate we seek to have at least one or two members who are former Fellows of the Institute.  The Chair of the Committee is Professor John Iredale, the Pro Vice Chancellor at the University of Bristol; having served as a member of the committee he took over from Professor Patrick Maxwell in September 2017.
