The EHE Rare Cancer Charity (UK) will be dealing with different aspects of EHE in its daily operations including, as one of its core objectives, the periodic assessment of grant applications from research establishments and individuals. Our Trustees will be advised on research and medical matters while performing their roles by our Research and Medical Advisory Team comprising Dr Brian Rubin from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, Dr Robin Jones from the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, and Dr Robin Young from the Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield. This team, experienced with EHE cancer, provides the charity with world-class cancer research and oncology expertise. This is essential to ensure, where relevant, that the correct analysis and decisions are made. In the case of research funding it will help ensure that we get the maximum benefit from every pound of research funds we award. The charity is extremely grateful to Dr Rubin, Dr Jones and Dr Young for the ongoing support, guidance and knowledge that they provide.
