The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) advises the Governing Body on all medical and scientific matters relating to the Institute and its activities.
Its most important role is the assessment and selection of the annual Lister Prize Fellows, an in-depth process involving various international experts, and which allows the Lister Institute to select researchers with high potential whose career can be significantly boosted with our support.
There are currently fifteen members of the Scientific Advisory Committee providing expertise across a broad range of scientific and medical disciplines. We seek to have at least one member who is a former Fellow of the Institute.
The Chair of the Committee is Professor John Iredale, Pro Vice Chancellor Health at the University of Bristol.
The Lister Institute’s Scientific Advisory Committee is vital to ensuring that only the best researchers in the UK and Republic of Ireland are awarded one of our highly competitive research prizes.
