The Scientific Review Committee (SRC) of the NSW Brain Banks ensures that there is independent scientific review of all applications from researchers for the tissue specimens held by the two brain banks. The independent SRC chair makes a recommendation to the NSW Brain Banks Directors concerning whether the tissue request should be filled.
The SRC is comprised of:
Members of the AP are the brain bank directors and managers who give practical advice on tissue availability and use. International experts in tissue based research on alcohol and other drugs of abuse make up the NIAAA scientific review committee and assess US-based applications for this type of tissue held by the NSW BTRC.
