The Board of Governors
The Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors (BOG) is an energetic community of philanthropic leaders who are helping define the future of healthcare. Established by the Board of Directors in 1971, the BOG has become the primary fundraising and leadership development group at Cedars-Sinai. Our mission is to support Cedars-Sinai's foremost clinical programs, biomedical research and community outreach by providing financial resources, educational experiences and volunteer opportunities.
At the Board of Governors Innovation Center, scientists and physicians will focus on uncovering the genomic profile of an illness and developing new, personalized treatments and cell therapies targeting those specific disrupted genes or cell functions.
"The work of the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors is more important than ever. Our dedicated membership provides invaluable support for one of the world's premier healthcare systems. Our current initiative—the Board of Governors Innovation Center—will transform the landscape of medical research to fight today's most difficult diseases. Our members also are invited to participate in events and programs throughout the year. We encourage you to consider joining us!"
Chair, Board of Governors
