Research Management Committee

INDEPENDENT. INTERNATIONAL. LEADERS.

 

The Research Management Committee (RMC) is made up of independent members whose primary role is to evaluate research proposals and actively help BioCanRx monitor the progress of its projects. The RMC will build and maintain a robust, competitive research portfolio founded on scientific excellence and network goals. All RMC funding and budget recommendations go to the Board of Directors for approval.

 

In order to avoid potential conflicts of interest, the voting RMC is composed of independent and primarily international experts in biotherapeutics.
