The Peter G. Dodge Foundation (PGDF) is pleased to announce the formation of a new Advisory Council. Comprised of experts in all areas of the field, the Advisory Council (AC) will play a key role in shaping PGDF’s programmatic strategy over the years to come. AC members participate in grant application reviews, advise on program direction and best practices, and help raise awareness about PGDF’s work. The AC also serves as a resource to the Board of Directors and PGDF staff for advice as issues arise.

The Advisory Council has four Founding Members:

Dr. Jan Gryczynski, PhD; Senior Research Scientist, Friends Research Institute

Dr. Lorenzo Leggio, MD, PhD, MSc; Chief, Section on Clinical Psychoneuroendocrinology and Neuropsychopharmacology (CPN), National Institutes of Health

“We are fortunate to have such an amazingly talented and dedicated group of people to advise us as we move into the next phase of PGDF’s growth,” states Executive Director Elizabeth Cairns. “We are very grateful to each member of the AC for their friendship and service.”
