The Foundation has gathered academic, industry, and government thought leaders from fields including focused ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, cancer treatment, and focal drug delivery to serve on its Research Advisory Committee.

This group is tasked with ensuring that the Foundation's External Research Awards Program supports catalytic research, creates awareness of focused ultrasound technology and techniques, and advances innovative clinical applications of focused ultrasound.
