Scientific External Advisory Board
VCU Massey Cancer Center's Scientific External Advisory Board is composed of scientists and senior leaders from other major cancer centers. This distinguished committee of experts in cancer research, prevention and control and administration serves in an advisory capacity for Massey's director and senior leaders on matters of scientific program structure and research and overall Center planning and management. In addition to the standing external advisory membership, ad hoc advisors are added to the roster periodically to assess and advise regarding specific programs, shared resources or inter-programmatic activities.
