Governance Board


The Governance Board provides oversight of all the Cancer Research UK funded activity within the Convergence Science Centre, reviewing progress and taking decisions as necessary to ensure effective delivery of the strategy. It reports to Cancer Research UK, the Institute of Cancer Research Executive Board and Imperial College London Provost Board. External scientific advice is provided by the independent Scientific Advisory Board. The Executive Management Committee also reports directly into the Governance Board.
