Advisory Councils

The International Scientific Advisory Council (ISAC) and the Program Development Advisory Council (PDAC) operate as consultation councils providing strategic advice, guidance, and connections to facilitate the recruitment of the Edwin S.H. Leong UBC Chair in Healthy Aging – a UBC President’s Excellence Chair.

ISAC comprises established scientific leaders from prominent international institutions involved in fields related to healthy aging, as well the Dean of the UBC Faculty of Medicine. PDAC comprises established scientific leaders from UBC involved in fields related to healthy aging.

Once the inaugural chair holder is in place, the ISAC and PDAC will support the successful launch and development of the Edwin S.H. Leong Healthy Aging Program. The councils will serve as a scientific sounding board to support the Edwin S.H. Leong UBC Chair in Healthy Aging – a UBC President’s Excellence Chair in building the program. The councils will also provide expertise and perspective to help ensure the program remains true to the donor’s vision.
