Our Leadership

Board of Directors & Scientific Advisory Council

The Board of Directors of ACGT are volunteer members representing some of the greatest minds in the fields of science, education, business and philanthropy. They approve all grant awards and provide fiscal oversight and strategic direction for the organization.

ACGT’S Scientific Advisory Council is composed of preeminent physicians and researchers in cell and gene therapy. Council members, who serve without remuneration, establish the scientific criteria for review of all grants and develop strict accountability guidelines requiring periodic progress reports. The Council submits recommendations for funding to the Board of Directors for final selection of award recipients.
