Call for applications for membership of the ANZMUSC Clinical Trials Network Scientific Advisory Committee

The Australia and New Zealand Musculoskeletal (ANZMUSC) Clinical Trials Network seeks to
optimise musculoskeletal health through high quality, collaborative clinical research.

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) provides scientific and methodological advice/review on proposals that have been submitted for ANZMUSC funding, awards or endorsement, or for presentation at an ANZMUSC Scientific Meeting. The SAC can also be called on to provide advice on relevant policies and procedures.

The SAC meets 3-4 times a year (face to face at the annual scientific meeting, then via zoom).

SAC members are appointed initially for two years, with the option of re-appointment for two further terms of two years each (maximum six years). Applicants will need to be a full member of ANZMUSC to be eligible. Members will need to declare all conflicts of interest.
