The TS Alliance International Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB) is comprised of both U.S. and international leaders in all areas of science relating to TSC research.  The mission of the ISAB is to help guide the TS Alliance’s future research strategies by:

  • Providing direction for immediate and long-term TSC research initiatives,
  • Identifying and prioritizing translational TSC research opportunities,
  • Enhancing awareness of TSC and the TS Alliance in the research community, and
  • Aligning with the TS Alliance Professional Advisory Board to position the TS Alliance as the leader in privately-funded TSC research.
