"The National Advisory Council was created to assist the TGen Foundation in raising funds for specific disease-related research. The Council is an inclusive organization that provides opportunities for all volunteers who are motivated to help advance scientific research of human disease. Advisors and Ambassadors alike play critically important roles."

Chaired by U.S. Senator John S. McCain, the National Advisory Council (NAC) is an organization developed and managed by the TGen Foundation in order to broaden the Foundation's reach to potential donors across the United States and beyond.

The NAC is a national volunteer organization administered by the TGen Foundation, and focused on raising critically needed funds to support TGen or its specific disease research programs.

NAC volunteers may participate at the Advisor or Ambassador level.

Council Advisors are individuals who are appointed for a renewable two-year period, and who assist the Foundation Board of Directors and professional staff in furthering the mission and fundraising goals of the Foundation.

The TGen Foundation has already launched two disease specific committees, the Adrenocortical Carcinoma Committee and the Pancreatic Cancer Committee. In addition, there is an 'At Large' Committee comprised of volunteers who are helping TGen's basic research programs and cross-program needs
