The OrthoCarolina Research Advisory Committee (RAC) provides the day to day oversight, assistance, and guidance necessary to maintain research and educational activities consistent with the Institute’s mission.
RAC meets bi-monthly to evaluate and approve/reject submitted research proposals based on scientific merit, suitability, and/or the impact on research support services at the Institute. Working with OCRI’s administrative staff, RAC establishes annual research and funding priorities, assesses research staffing and space utilization, oversees regulatory issues and ethics, and approves research policies and procedures.
