External Selection Committee (ESC)
The ESC serves the key role of reviewing project applications submitted to the Technology Development Program and making funding recommendations. The committee is comprised of nine members who represent broad clinical, science, finance, business development and commercialization backgrounds. Collectively they review, score, rank, and make recommendations as to which projects the Center should fund. The Committee convenes twice a year as the final internal selection process step of each funding cycle.
