The Loudoun County Regional Science & Engineering Fair (RSEF) is looking for volunteers to serve as members of the Science Review Committee (SRC) and Institutional Review Board (IRB). Members of the SRC/IRB are asked to review student science project proposals for their compliance with the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) rules.
The SRC/IRB review process begins in mid-October and continues until December each year.
Review board members should have a doctoral degree in biomedical science or, MD, DVM, DDS, PharmD or DO.
