Scientific committee

The people behind the decisions

“We are often asked how the Board goes about selecting the most worthwhile projects. We receive many applications for promising research; so we count on the advice of the experts – our Scientific Advisory Committee. This Committee is made of eminent cancer specialists who give their time voluntarily to meet and evaluate proposals. The breadth of knowledge and depth of experience of our committee members ensure that only research of the highest caliber is funded. If an application shows great promise then we will award it funding no matter where in the world it is being carried out.”
