Forward Fund Steering

Forward Fund Steering Committee

The Forward Fund Steering Committee will generate and suggest ideas of how to expand the fundraising efforts to support and provide research and educational opportunities for basic and translational scientists and clinical investigators who are focusing on cancer immunotherapy.  The Committee will also help to identify additional revenue resources, provide insights on the outputs from the field, and identify trends to help better position the fund, and provide appropriate guidance on the fund’s financial tactics.
