Board of Scientific Advisors

The Fund’s commitment to excellence is embodied in the Board of Scientific Advisers. The BSA has been largely responsible for shaping the original charitable gift into an effective force for the advancement of medical research by supporting the broadest view of basic biomedical science as it relates to cancer research. The Fund has been fortunate to attract extraordinarily distinguished scientists to the BSA. They have brought their expertise, a concern for excellence and a spirit of service that has contributed immeasurably to the Fund’s reputation and accomplishments. This is clearly demonstrated by the 23 Nobel prizes that have been awarded to BSA members, Grantees and Fellows.
