Scientific Advisory Committee

The Scientific Advisory Committee was appointed to provide advice to the CAVA team on the many different facets of the CAVA project.

The committee is a group of experienced professionals, working in the fields of medicine, industrial design and software engineering. The committee meets bi-annually for a working dinner, during which the team discusses their progress, and the committee offers their opinions and suggestions on the current issues presented by the project.

Please see below for a short biography of each member of the committee.
