The Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) is an external advisory group that advises Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s (CSHL) senior management on matters pertaining to science (both current and future), including the development of a research strategy to maintain CSHL as a world leader. The SAC is a nine member Council, including a Chair of Council who is an individual known for scientific breadth and a detailed understanding of research management at the senior management level. The other eight members are world leaders in their respective fields and as such are able to provide advice on the different research areas of the Laboratory.
