Expert Review Panelists

These panels are comprised of esteemed neurologists and neuroscientists who are experts in their field. They review all project applications related to their field of sub-specialty and are responsible for determining which projects meet the criteria for the American Brain Foundation’s crowdfunding site. Approved projects are posted on the crowdfunding site and fundraising campaigns begin.
