G.R.M.A.B.

Global Research and Medical Advisory Board

GRMAB functions to:

  • Provide professional medical and scientific guidance in the design and implementation of Cure HHT's research programs and strategic initiatives
  • Ensure that the medical and scientific aspects of Cure HHT's activities are at the forefront of current knowledge and professional standards
  • Oversee the organization, planning committee and program for the International HHT Scientific Conference
  • Establish and maintain liaison with professional societies
  • Promote, register and coordinate research into the basic science, genetic and clinical aspects of HHT

To wrest from nature the secrets which have perplexed philosophers in all ages, to track to their sources the causes of disease, to correlate the vast stores of knowledge, that they may be quickly available for the prevention and cure of disease-these are our ambitions
