Scientific Advisory Committee

The Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research has developed a Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) comprised of researchers, clinicians, and advocates. All committee members will:

  • Review all study proposals to determine if the project is ethical, safe in its design, and feasible for the Love Research Army membership.
  • Serve as spokespersons and advocates for the Love Research Army.

The SAC members are invited to sit on the committee because of their expertise regarding and their commitment to the eradication of breast cancer. Collaborators, including the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), nominated at least one member from within their organization. New members will be chosen with priority given to specialties needed to implement the current Love Research Army strategy.

If you are interested in joining the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC), please click here to submit an application, and a staff member from the Foundation will contact you once the application has been reviewed.
