GSI Advisory Committee

We believe that taking a well-reasoned, properly planned and carefully evaluated approach to the work we do is critical to achieving successful and sustainable outcomes.

To help GSI reach the right decisions, we are assembling a Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee, made up of experts from around the world, who can evaluate proposals, consider and develop guidelines, discuss ethical issues and provide recommendations and advice.
