Science Advisory Board

Our Science Advisory Board (SAB) is comprised of doctors and researchers who work within the mesothelioma field around the world. Members of the SAB are expected to review and score the applications submitted for our research grants. Essentially, they are the “peers” mentioned in “peer-reviewed” research. They ensure that grant applications submitted to the Meso Foundation are evaluated through a process that is fair, equitable, timely and free of bias. SAB members are also expected to attend our Symposiums, raise awareness of mesothelioma and encourage those affected by the disease to join the Meso Foundation. They are called upon for expert opinions and advice on scientific matters on behalf of the Meso Foundation.

All members of the SAB are volunteers. They receive no compensation for their service. 

Our SAB includes the top scientists and doctors fighting mesothelioma. We are pleased to call them a part of the Meso Foundation and honored they have agreed to volunteer in such a capacity, as we all work for effective treatments for mesothelioma patients.
