Research Advisory Council

 

Research Advisory Council (RAC)


PCC is advised and counseled by a Research Advisory Council (RAC) that comprises prominent prostate cancer researchers. The role of RAC is to:
  • Synthesize the results of the peer review process and make recommendations for funding to senior PCC staff
  • Receive reports of the evaluation of PCC research programs and provide advice on the development of new programs and the ongoing improvements to existing programs
  • Lead the identification of strategic research areas that could be targeted with specific Requests For Applications
  • Evaluate the PCC peer review processes and recommend necessary enhancements on an ongoing basis
  • Recommend membership of peer review panels
  • Identify potential national and international opportunities for collaboration
  • Provide advice in the development and refinements of scientific and administrative policies
The Council will be composed of established prostate cancer researchers who:
  • Collectively represent expertise in all areas of prostate cancer research
  • Are broadly representative of all major regions in Canada
  • Individually have a strong track record in peer-reviewed research funding and research output

In addition, the Council will include 2 non-scientific members, one of whom must be a prostate cancer patient or survivor. Each will be identified and selected through a formal nomination process.
