Scientific Advisory Board

Geneva’s Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) provides scientific consult, advisement, and direction to Geneva’s senior leadership, program directors, principal investigators, and research administrators. The SAB is a strategic partner alongside Geneva’s leadership to ensure the science remains relevant, sustainable, and innovative. The SAB has grown in scope to be one of Geneva’s main differentiators, and much emphasis has been made since its inception on developing and leveraging our SAB as Geneva’s priorities grow and evolve. Geneva continues to recruit experts who represent critical and emerging research areas most relevant to the military’s medical priorities.
