Our Board, led by Professor Nicholas Lemoine, includes trustees with expertise in science and science funding, bioethics, fundraising, communications and investments.
Candidates for two of the nine trustee positions are nominated by the Medical Research Council (MRC). The Board of Trustees receive advice on research priorities, and applications for support, principally from members of the MRC’s research boards and other members of the scientific community.
Our trustees act in a voluntary role and do not get paid for the work they do for us.
The Foundation’s Chief Executive, Angela Hind PhD, was responsible for the transformation of the charity into a modern, charitable company in 2010 and continues to drive the Foundation’s growth and development.
Since January 2017, the team has doubled to eight members of staff and is expected to increase to 11 by Summer 2018.
