MNIMBS External Advisory Board Charge

This Board is non-governing, but provides insights and support on how to improve the MNIMBS.  This Board meets once per 1-1.5 years and its responsibilities include:

  • Annual review of programs and overall progress towards goals;
  • Advise the MNIMBS Director of program strengths and perceived weaknesses;
  • Assist in identifying new directions of research and translational opportunities;
  • Evaluate the success of project development programs;
  • Assess the overall effectiveness of the MNIMBS administration and organization.
