Scientific Advisors

The Jake Wetchler Foundation’s grant-giving activities are guided by the advice of three top-notch scientists, all from prestigious cancer research institutions, and partnerships with four major foundations.

The Jake Wetchler Foundation Scientific Advisory Board consists of:

We have also established relationships with four major foundations who recommend projects for our review: the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Life Sciences Research Foundation, and the American Society of Hematology.  We benefit from the ability of these four well-known and highly regarded organizations to cast a wide net attracting innovative researchers from across the country, and from the advice of their well-seasoned scientific advisory boards.  Their recommendations are reviewed by our own Scientific Advisory Board for breakthrough potential and for impact towards life-saving treatments for children.
