As a federal agency, NICHD receives advice from advisory committees, task forces, boards, and commissions to help it achieve its goals. Advice from these entities is guided by the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Public Law 92-463) and must be both objective and accessible to the public.
The BSC advises the NICHD Scientific Director, the Division of Intramural Research, and the Division of Intramural Population Health Research on matters related to in-house research activities.
