External Scientific Advisory Board (ESAB)

The External Scientific Advisory Board (ESAB) evaluates the CTH in all areas of scientific and structural development, including research strategies, appointment of staff, quality control, allocation of BMBF funding, and monitoring of BMBF requirements. The ESAB is particularly involved in all major financial decisions, the set-up of research groups, and investigator-initiated clinical trials. Internal procedures and work flows of the CTH are evaluated annually by the ESAB.

The ESAB consists of elected experts in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis research, cardiovascular diseases, health care, therapy and drug development.
