This widely respected group of medical and science professionals advises the Fund in all matters related to Fanconi anemia research. They help set research priorities, provide insight on the grants process, and contribute to the programming of the annual Fanconi Anemia Scientific Symposium. We are so grateful to have this dedicated group of doctors and researchers helping us to advance treatments and to find a cure for FA.
