Governance & structure
Our commitment to excellence extends to our governance arrangements by adopting best practice from the charity sector and from the corporate sector where appropriate.
Our Board membership reflects the need to have both strong scientific as well as business representation (see People for our Board composition).
In addition to the main Board we have four sub-committees:
- Audit & Finance Committee
- Innovation Committee
- Renumeration Committee
- Science Advisory Council

We are always open to receiving expressions of interest from those interested in becoming Trustees as vacancies may arise from time to time.
