The McLaughlin Committee is comprised of at least seven faculty members of the School of Medicine at UTMB that hold the rank of Assistant Professor or higher. In addition, there are ex officio committee members representing the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Institute for Human Infections & Immunity (IHII). The Director of the IHII appoints members of the Committee and the Chairperson. The terms of committee members are generally two years, except the Chairperson who serves at the call of the Director of the Institute for Human Infections and Immunity. Outoing Chairs remain on the Committee as full voting members for an additional year after their term ends to help with Chair succession.
The McLaughlin Committee has responsibility for managing the predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowship programs supported by the endowment, and serves in an advisory capacity to the Director of the Institute for Human Infections & Immunity and the President of the University of Texas Medical Branch.
