The CRUK Convergence Science Centre is led by its Executive Management Committee and has Subcommittees responsible for Research and Training (clinical and non-clinical). Oversight is provided by an independently chaired Governance Board comprising senior management representatives from Cancer Research UK and the Centre partner organisations. The Governance Board receives scientific advice from a Scientific Advisory Board comprised of international experts in cancer science and technology. The Centre is administered by an Operational team that sits between Imperial College London and The Institute of Cancer Research, London. In addition to its formal governance structure, the Centre is recognised as a Centre of Excellence within Imperial and as a research division within the ICR.
The CRUK Convergence Science Centre is a Centre of Excellence within Imperial with the purpose of helping to create a critical mass of researchers who transcend Faculty boundaries. This framework is part of a multi-faculty initiatives that support multidisciplinary research, and is championed by Imperial College London Vice-Provost for Research and Enterprise, Professor Mary Ryan.
