Childhood Tumour Trust Appoints New Medical Advisory Board Members

Earlier this year Medics4RareDiseases (M4RD) helped Childhood Tumour Trust (CTT) search for a doctor that could attend the International Neurofibromatosis Conference in San Francisco this September.

The successful candidate would learn about the latest developments in Neurofibromatosis Type 1, make connections and report back to CTT.

With the help of M4RD, CTT received a number of excellent applications. In fact they couldn’t decide between two exceptional candidates so they chose two doctors, Dr Georgina Bird-Lieberman and Dr Sarah Joyce to attend the conference. After the conference they will become part of the CTT medical advisory board.

In addition they have chosen four more doctors to join their medical advisory board:

Dr Lizzy Charlton, Dr Srinivasa Rambhatla, Dr Katheryn Ferina all from the UK and Dr Kristina Rath from the USA. They will be vital for enabling CTT to support families affected by Neurofibromatosis Type 1.

MARD and CTT would like to thank all those that applied for these roles and the successful candidates.
