Peer Review Committee

All of our funding decisions are guided by our Peer Review Committee. This group of doctors, scientists, and researchers are charged with advising CURE in scientific matters pertaining to childhood cancer. They conduct a thorough review of all research proposals to assess both scientific merit and alignment with CURE’s goals. Together they offer guidance to ensure every dollar we invest in research is spent wisely and affords the best chance that one day, every child diagnosed with cancer receives a safe and effective treatment.

The CURE Childhood Cancer is proud to present the current Peer Review Committee:
