Advocates in Science Application

The Komen Advocates in Science Program (AIS) is an inclusive community of dedicated volunteer advocates in scientific breast cancer research. They are brought together and sponsored by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to: (1) foster excellence in research advocacy, and (2) spur greater advocate engagement in research-related activities. Research advocates participate in a variety of scientific activities to ensure that the unique and valuable perspectives of cancer survivors and others affected by cancer are integrated into scientific dialogue and decisions affecting our progress toward ending breast cancer. They bring a real-world understanding of what most impacts those affected by breast cancer, and an urgency to find cures and more effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

If you would like to be part of this community, complete the following application. Once you have completed the application, please have a Letter of Recommendation (LOR) sent to advocatesinscience@komen.org. Your application and LOR will then be reviewed. You will be notified within 2-3 weeks of submission. If you have questions or concerns, please email advocatesinscience@komen.org. Thank you!
