From 2018 OIFE has had a formal advisory team of OI-knowledgeable professionals – a Medical Advisory Board (MAB). The OIFE MAB includes people from different professions – both clinicians and researchers. Dr. Oliver Semler serves as the chair of the advisory board.

The mandate of OIFE’s MAB is not to give advice regarding specific medical problems concerning groups or individuals with OI. The MAB-members will be speaking partners & advisors to the Executive Committee in more strategic questions – for instance:

  • Policy planning where this has a medical component
  • Discussions about new scientific developments
  • When to support, promote or inform about research

We will do a revision every second year to secure that different fields of expertise and networks of OI-specialists will be represented.
