HRS Co-Investigators & Committees
NIA's HRS Monitoring Committee
The NIA's HRS Monitoring Committee is an advisory group comprised of independent members of the academic research community as well as representatives of agencies interested in the study. This committee provides advice and recommendations to the NIA Program Officer. The structure of the Monitoring Committee allows and encourages the coordination of federal statistical operations, which increases the value of the study to both federal and research communities. One result of the unique configuration of the Data Monitoring and Design Committee has been much needed support in terms of assistance with the administrative linkages efforts of the study, and the provision of recommendations for substantial additional funding.
