Oversight Committee


The Oversight Committee is a critical asset to the Coulter@Pitt Program. This group of experienced business leaders, clinicians, biomedical innovators, and venture capitalists provide strategic guidance, assists in selecting projects and teams for funding, and mentor many of our academic students and faculty. The Oversight Committee is unique in the depth of talent it has in conducting and evaluating translational research, in starting and funding new companies, and in commercializing academic discoveries. There are currently 13 voting members and 4 non-voting ad-hoc members.
