Scientific Advisory Committee

Our Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) advises on technical and research activities. Appointed from across the malaria and broader scientific research community, SAC members have significant expertise in the discipline of each of WWARN’s Scientific Groups.

Scientific Advisory Commitee (SAC) members provide advice on specific scientific priorities and approaches; they help us to ensure a useful balance and scope of scientific activities, and they support us to promote collaboration with other organisations that are relevant to WWARN’s work.

The SAC meets up to four times each year: usually twice in person at the WWARN annual meeting, a second time in conjunction with an international scientific conference, such as the ASTMH in the USA, and twice virtually. In addition to these meetings SAC members often support sub-committees or working groups for specific research projects.
