Scientific Advisory Committee
Our independent Scientific Advisory Committee is made up of world-leading scientists who give their time voluntarily to ensure the quality of our research programmes.
The Committee provides advice to the Senior Management Team and Trustees on all aspects of our research work. In order to do this, it meets with the principal investigators of each research discipline every year.
