Each Secretary General is affiliated with one or more of our Scientific Councils, Councils or Committees, with responsibility for managing the cases dealt with there. In addition, there are two Deputy Secretaries General, one for development research and one for medicine and health. Artistic research has an associated Scientific Advisor.
