Scientific and Medical Advisory Board (SMAB)

The Scientific & Medical Advisory Board (SMAB) is established to provide the Board of Directors of the Carcinoid NeuroEndocrine Tumor Society of Canada (CNETS Canada) with independent, expert, multi-disciplinary, and strategic advice on the status of current and upcoming medical and scientific issues related to diagnosis, therapy and better management of treatment of NET patients. The SMAB will also assess and recommend potential medical and scientific partnerships and linkages that can advance the mandate of CNETS Canada. The CNETS Canada Board of Directors (the Board) will carefully assess all the recommendations of the SMAB, but will retain the final authority and responsibilities for taking any decision pursuant to those recommendations.
