“Saving lives through education,
   advances in treatment, and
finding a cure for Barth syndrome”

Scientific & Medical Advisory Board

The Barth Syndrome Foundation’s (BSF) international Scientific and Medical Advisory Board is a dedicated team of researchers and physicians who generously donate their time and expertise to our mission. Without them, we would not be able to review grant applications with multi-dimensional expertise or write medically-approved educational materials about Barth syndrome. These eminent scientists and physicians are central to our goals and our operation. BSF is incredibly pleased to introduce our members, each of whom has agreed to serve for a four-year term. This international group forms the review panel for research grants and provides scientific and medical advice and guidance to BSF's Board of Directors.
