Board of Directors

The members of the International PNH Interest Group Board of Directors are recognized experts in the care and management of PNH. Together, they bring to IPIG a vast depth and breadth of knowledge about PNH and related conditions.

Board members are elected by IPIG members at the Annual Meeting of Members for terms of three years and are eligible for successive terms. To ensure adequate member representation, at least one director is elected from each of three geographic areas: Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America.
