Please note: While FSR receives guidance and input from our Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), it is not to be implied that all SAB members support or are in agreement in each specific FSR initiative or approach. As with most professional groups, members may have differing perspectives and opinions on various issues. FSR’s intent is always to work toward consensus with our experts as much as feasible while addressing patient and research needs.
