The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is a representative group of volunteer members who live, work, and participate in the Mississippi communities they represent. The CAB has a strong advisory role to the Mississippi Center for Clinical and Translational Research (MCCTR) and representation on the Internal Advisory Committee.
The CAB mission is to represent community concerns in the design, execution and evaluation of research conducted through the MCCTR and to serve as a bridge between researchers and the community in which the research is taking place.
