Board of Advisors

LSC    Bay Area    Engage & Support

As a collective impact organization, we are only as strong as the network we engage. The Life Science Cares Boards of Advisors, all executives committed to our mission and model, ensure we are reaching broad and deep across the life science industry. 

LSC Advisors are champions of our efforts within their organizations, connectors who leverage their network to help us grow, and contributors who ensure our operations and programs have the resources necessary to make an impact. Advisors are invited to help shape our strategy, by participating in Grant Review Committees, site visits and Advisor-only events.
