Research Support team (with Association, Communication & Philanthropy)
The Research Support team comprises Association, Communication and Philanthropy. The Association team provides support to potential and actual members of BIG, and organizes BIG’s Executive Board, Scientific, and General Assembly meetings, among others. The Communications team, including a unit focused entirely on digital activities, works closely with BIG member groups and the study teams to communicate key messages to the scientific community about the many studies run under the BIG umbrella, as well as other important achievements by BIG members. This work is done through newsletters, special publications , social media and press activities. BIG’s Philanthropy unit, or BIG against breast cancer, conducts vital fundraising – through events, campaigns, partnerships and grants, among other activities – to help finance BIG’s academic clinical trials and research programmes that have no commercial interest but are crucial for patients with breast cancer.
*All of the BIG HQ teams report to BIG’s CEO. Additional support is provided to both the CEO / BIG HQ by an executive assistant, a data protection officer, a quality manager, a prevention officer, and a receptionist.
