Our Board of Governors

August 16, 2022

The ICTR Board of Governors meets bimonthly to provide guidance on all ICTR programs and policies that impact clinical and translational research across the institution. Chaired by the Vice Chancellor of Research and Graduate Education, and comprised of Deans (or designated representatives) from the UW Health Sciences Schools and College, and a representative from Marshfield Clinic, the committee provides final approval for programmatic changes and ensures that ICTR performs effectively across institutional and campus boundaries. The Committee also evaluates the work of ICTR leadership and, if necessary, recommends to the Vice Chancellor of Research and Graduate Education and the Chancellor the need to change leadership.
