The Cystinosis Research Foundation works closely with the CRF Scientific Review Board (SRB) comprised of leading experts in the field of cystinosis who determine the scientific validity and merit of the grant proposals based on the NIH scale of standards.  The SRB advises the Cystinosis Research Foundation on the scientific merit of each proposal.
