The ABTA relies on leaders in the brain tumor community to make sure the work we do is meaningful and accurate. Our Scientific Advisory Council makes research funding recommendations to the ABTA board of directors, and also advises the ABTA about scientific trends and new areas of research. Our Clinical Advisory Council reviews our publications and other content we put out to make sure everything is clinically up to date.
