Scientific Medical Advisory Board

The role of the Foundation’s Scientific Medical Advisory Board (SMAB) is to advise the Board of Directors on a range of issues. In general, the SMAB provides scientific review of research proposals to ensure that the research programs funded by The INADcure Foundation are scientifically sound, pertinent and have potential to make an impact within the INAD research community.

Our Scientific Medical Advisory Board is comprised of scientists, researchers and clinicians from around the country.
