The TS Alliance International Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB) is comprised of both U.S. and international leaders in all areas of science relating to TSC research.  This board assists the TS Alliance in defining the role of the TS Alliance in both current and future TSC scientific endeavors and will work with the TS Alliance Professional Advisory Board to identify and prioritize translational research opportunities. ISAB members meet annually through a TS Alliance-sponsored conference, which will also provides a forum for promoting collaborative efforts between the international and U.S. TSC research communities. The mission of the ISAB is to help guide the TS Alliance’s future research strategies by:
  • Providing direction for immediate and long term TSC research initiatives;
  • Identifying and prioritizing translational TSC research opportunities;
  • Enhancing awareness of TSC and the TS Alliance in the member’s respective research communities; and
  • Aligning with the TS Alliance Professional Advisory Board to position the TS Alliance as the leader in privately-funded TSC research
