Research Capital Investment Committee

The Executive Vice Dean for Research has been provisioned funds to support the investment in research core facilities. The Research Capital Investment Committee will prioritize capital requests from core directors, by relevance and need to the Medical School faculty at large.

The Research Capital Investment Committee includes a subset of faculty from the Biomedical Research Core Facility (BRCF) Scientific Advisory Committee in order to provide the sharing of information across both committees. In addition, membership includes multiple faculty members from across the Medical School with a variety of affiliations.
