The role of the RAP is to provide independent, expert peer review of research proposals, and to recommend to the AAT Board of Trustees which projects should be funded. RAP members represent world-class specialists in haematology from across the UK. The focus of the AAT and the RAP is to make sure that the research we fund adds the greatest possible value to the research activity in the field of rare bone marrow failures. Members of the RAP will uphold our Conflict of Interest policy (include link), to ensure that any conflicts they may have with the application or applicant(s) are declared in advance, in order that these are properly managed in line with impartiality standards. Our research strategy will evolve in line with our research achievements, lessons learnt, continuous and meaningful engagement with our patient and support community, taking into account global research effort and scientific advice from a broader haematology network.
The RAP is our expert panel of advisors who will make recommendations to the AAT's Board of Trustees on which research projects should be funded
