The Director, Professor Gordon Brown has responsibility for the strategic direction and development of the MRC CMM, in consultation with the International Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB), Management Board (MB) and other centre principal investigators.
The Director is supported by three Deputy Directors (Professor Elaine Bignell [research], Professor Alistair Brown [training and technology development] and Professor Adilia Warris [clinical]), plus a Research Centre Manager (Dr Alberto Muñoz).
The ISAB is comprised of national and international experts in medical mycology, including an MRC representative. The ISAB provides the MB with objective, independent advice on our development, scientific strategy and research, training and translational activities. The ISAB receives minutes of all MB meetings, evaluates annual reports and undertakes formal Centre reviews (Years 2 and 4).
