Medical & Scientific Advisory Board

The Medical & Scientific Advisory Board (MSAB) provides strategic input, insight and expertise to Global Genes in the key areas of rare disease diagnostics, technology, drug development and potential partnerships related to rare disease science. The MSAB mission, goals and advisory role is strategically aligned with the Global Genes mission- To Eliminate the Challenges of Rare Disease.

This multidisciplinary board serves in an advisory capacity to the Global Genes executive leadership team and will convene quarterly to further specific initiatives as well as work together to broaden the impact of Global Genes by advancing innovation in technology, science, advocacy and research.

The MSAB consists of MDs, PhDs, MBAs, clinicians, geneticists, scientific researchers and professors.
