In order to maintain the highest standard of research, IMBA has installed a process of review and feedback: the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), consisting of internationally recognized scientists. The Board meets yearly at IMBA, and, together with IMBA researchers, discusses the quality, significance, and main focus of research conducted at IMBA.
