Scientific Advisory Committee


Members of the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) are appointed to advise the University of California on the direction and priorities of the TRDRP. Members represent major California organizations and groups involved in tobacco-related health research and tobacco control efforts. Each member serves a three-year term without compensation and agrees to refrain from seeking TRDRP funding during tenure on the committee.
