NAAF Research Advisory Councils

In an effort to bring focus to NAAF’s broadening research efforts, our scientific advisors have been restructured into two groups offering separate counsel on 1) basic research and 2) clinical research. The goal is to foster an open, collaborative system involving all the critical stakeholders without overly burdening these volunteers who so graciously contribute their time and expertise. The objective of these two committees, known as the Basic Research Advisory Council (BRAC) and the Clinical Research Advisory Council (CRAC), is to have smaller, more focused groups that can work together more efficiently to advance the Alopecia Areata Treatment Development Program.
