Industrial Advisory Committee

The Ray W. Herrick Laboratories' Industrial Advisory Committee has met at least once a year since the Laboratories started in 1958.  The committee is comprised of high level executives and managers from various industries that have close links to the Laboratories.  Each year, the members of the committee review the Laboratories’ operations over the previous year and meet with the students to learn about current projects.  They also advise the faculty and the Director on future plans and  facilitate the development of research partnerships between the Laboratories and Industry.
