The Frederick National Laboratory Advisory Committee (FNLAC) to the National Cancer Institute will review the state of research at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR) and make recommendations for the best use of its capabilities and infrastructure. Specifically, the committee will review major new projects proposed to be performed at FNLCR and advise the Director, NCI and Associate Director, FNLCR about the intrinsic merit of the projects and about whether they should be done at the FNLCR. In addition, the Committee will periodically review the existing portfolio of projects at FNLCR, evaluate their productivity, help determine which of these projects should be transitioned to more conventional mechanisms of support, i.e., (grants, contracts, cooperative agreements) and which should be considered for termination. The Committee will help to assure that the operations at FNLCR are open, transparent, and in the best interests of the entire cancer research community.
The FNLCA will be holding its 12th Regular Meeting. More information is available at the FNLCA website.
