Scientific committee – organization

equipe Com

The Scientific Advisory Board of the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation selects research projects that are both directly linked to the scientific purpose of the Foundation and with requirements of innovation and scientifically relevant. It includes an all-volunteer team of scientific representatives from the Academic and medical world. These experts offer their skills and their times together with the Jerôme Lejeune Foundation to support research in genetic intellectual disability. 

It organises its meetings around calls for grants several times a year. Calls are being and answered by scientists. The SAB selects the best projects and makes recommandations to the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation board of Directors to allocate grants. The final say is upon the decision of the board of Directors.
