The Scientific Committee assists the San Salvatore Foundation’s Board of Directors in choosing the candidates for the San Salvatore Award and evaluating the research projects worthy of financial aid.

The main task of the Scientific Committee is to identify researchers particularly worthy and to propose to the Board of Directors each year the best candidates for the San Salvatore Award.

Furthermore, the Scientific Committee regularly examines requests for subsidizing for experimental and clinical research in the field of oncology and makes its recommendations in this regard to the Board of Directors of the San Salvatore Foundation.
