Time is running out to be considered as part of this team. The research company that is asking for our input is wanting to get started with this board next week.
Here is some information on what board members will be helping to accomplish:
The role of advisory board member is to inform the development of Monarc Bionetworks' solutions -- ranging from providing input on clinical trial protocols, where the company focuses its research efforts, technology selection for trials, and insights on what it's like to live with IPF on a day to day basis. With an advisory board in place, we hope to ensure MonARC's efforts directly support patient and caregiver needs, and together through our insights, we hope to drive more patient-centered research and care. Our goal is to have the advisory board consist of 3 patients with IPF and 2 caregiversmonARC Bionetworks activates Patient Powered Research Networks, Powers Connected Clinical Trials, and Unlocks Integrated Learning Tools that help to generate meaningful insights into specific disease related research.
If you might be interested in participating as a member of this advisory board, and help to improve the way clinical trials are conducted, head on over to the WEGO Health Experts Platform and apply today.
