External Advisory Committee

The Bench to Bassinet Program receives advice from its External Advisory Committee (EAC), whose membership consists of experts in pediatric cardiology, genomics and sequencing technologies, bioinformatics and statistics. The members of the EAC are not principal investigators or funded by Bench to Bassinet. The EAC provides recommendations to the NHLBI Program Management Office to determine the overall scientific direction of the Program, and to change direction as the field progresses, as well as assisting in Program evaluations.
