Research Departments

The research programme is driven by teams led by a Principal Investigator, with staff grouped into eight Research Departments that reflect their specialist interests and affinities. This structure helps promote close multidisciplinary interaction between teams of scientists with a wide variety of backgrounds and qualifications who work together on a single disease-based topic.

The academic staff also belong to one of six different Divisions: these have been established to ensure that professional affiliations are well represented and to provide a forum for those with similar specialist training.
