Scientific Advisory Board
The Scientific Advisory Board of the MPN Research Foundation plays a key role by ensuring that our research strategy and our annual grant programs are aligned as well as possible with the Foundation's mission – to stimulate critical research and ultimately a cure for the MPNs. Our current SAB members are:
Andrew I. Schafer, MD Chairman
John Crispino, PhD, MBA Scientific Advisor
The SAB also provides specific guidance on strategic issues related to supporting the clinical trial process; interaction with the FDA and other regulatory agencies; investment in infrastructure to support ongoing research (e.g., optimize patient registry, tissue banking, model development, etc.) and more as needed.
