The Medical and Scientific Advisory Board assists the Foundation in understanding and interpreting clinical and scientific research related to Malan syndrome. An additional role of the Advisory Board is to review research proposals. As part of our mission, the Malan Syndrome Foundation is committed to supporting research investigating the underlying causes of Malan syndrome and treatment for this disorder. We hope to accomplish this by awarding research grants from our charitable fundraising efforts.
