Governance Structure

The CNBP is a collaborative program with research focussed within nodes at the University of Adelaide, Macquarie University, RMIT University, Griffith University and the University of New South Wales.

The CNBP links into the broader Australian community through a selected web of Associate Investigators. 

The reach and capacity of the Centre will be enhanced by active links with Partner Organisations, providing Centre researchers with rich opportunities to work within leading international groups in areas that complement and extend the core capabilities in the Centre, both within Australia (CSIRO, SAHMRI) and overseas (Peking; HUST; IPHT, Jena; University Health Network, Toronto; QST, Japan;  and City University London).

A strong governance structure  will enable us to marshal the enthusiasm and commitment of this team to the vision of the CNBP to pursue ambitious science goals.

Committees and Boards

 

Executive Management Committee

The Purpose of the Executive Management Committee (EMC) is to oversee all aspects of Centre activities.  Other Centre Boards and Committees are structured to provide high level advice and support to the EMC.
