Center for Molecular Medicine Cologne

CMMC Scientific Advisory Board

The External Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) composed of eminent scientists and chaired by Prof. Dr. Roland Schüle (Center for Clinical Research, Univ. Freiburg Medical Center) continuously assists the Executive Board and the principle investigators by reviewing the research programs and advising on policy and scientific matters.

An in-depth and thorough evaluation of the Center takes place before the start of every three-year funding period. The evaluation report and recommendations of the SAB are forwarded to and assessed by the Rectorate of the University of Cologne.
