Our Scientific Advisory Committee

We receive around 400 ideas from scientists all over the world every year. We want to make sure only the most innovative, creative and exciting research is funded. So we leave the selecting process to the experts - our Scientific Advisory Committee. This Committee is made of eminent cancer specialists who give up their time voluntarily to assess, review and judge the ideas we receive each year. The breadth of knowledge and depth of experience of our committee members ensure that only research of the highest calibre is funded. It’s always about the quality of the science and the novelty of the idea.
