Scientific Advisory Board

The international Scientific and technical Advisory Board (SAB) has a primordial role in the RHU STOP-AS project. It conducts a rigorous and independent scientific evaluation to develop the quality and relevance of the research carried out within the consortium. The SAB has 6 members and is chaired by Alain Cribier. It is made up of international scientists, renowned for their expertise in the field of aortic stenosis: Magnus Bäck, Catherine Otto, Maurice E. Sarano, Alec Vahanian and Jean-Louis Vanoverschelde. The role of this council is to examine the research projects of each team as well as the general scientific project, to advise the Steering Committee and to make recommendations for improvement. The SAB will meet twice during the project period (2017-2021).
