Science Committee Print
The Science Committee is to provide leadership, guidance, and support to OTS’ research mission.  It has a leadership role in identifying critical emerging research areas in tropical studies, and coordinating with the Directors of the Biological Research Stations to develop the support necessary to advance those areas.  The Science Committee provides guidance for appropriate infrastructure, including information technology, at the biological research stations, and on OTS-wide research policies.  The Science Committee works to enable effective scientific collaboration across the broader research community, with the Assembly of Delegates, Board of Directors, other committees, and with OTS staff.  The elected Vice-chairs for Research and Informatics co-chair the Science Committee.
