    The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) gives notice under Public 
Law 92-463 (Federal Advisory Committee Act) that a meeting of the 
Clinical Science Research and Development Service Cooperative Studies 
Scientific Evaluation Committee will be held on January 13, 2011, at 
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, 1150 22nd Street, NW., Washington, DC. The 
meeting is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and end at 2:30 p.m.
    The Committee advises the Chief Research and Development Officer 
through the Director of the Clinical Science Research and Development 
Service on the relevance and feasibility of proposed projects and the

    The session will be open to the public for approximately 30 minutes 
at the start of the meeting for the discussion of administrative 
matters and the general status of the program. The remaining portion of 
the meeting will be closed to the public for the Committee's review, 
discussion and evaluation of research and development applications.
    During the closed portion of the meeting, discussions and 
recommendations will deal with qualifications of personnel conducting 
the studies, staff and consultant critiques of research proposals and 
similar documents and the medical records of patients who are study 
subjects, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly 
unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. As provided by section 10(d)

in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(6) and (c)(9)(B).
