SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY BOARD

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS.

The Scientific Advisory Board is comprised of a group of doctors whose primary task is to review and evaluate research grant requests submitted to Cancer League for funding each year. Their dedication and commitment enable the League to award its research grant funds to the most qualified researchers for the most highly prioritized projects in the state of Colorado.


Once again, Cancer League has assembled a top-flight group of medical professionals for evaluating research grant requests. Our independent Scientific Advisory Board is one of the key elements that distinguishes Cancer League of Colorado from nearly all other cancer funding organizations.
