Governance Structure

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

The CNBP links into the broader Australian community through a selected web of Associate Investigators (AIs) from Melbourne University, Monash, University of Technology Sydney, University of New South Wales and University of Western Australia. 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, Huazhong, Toronto, Southampton 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.

Our Governance Structure

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.

Translation and Impact Committees

CNBP Researchers are focused on using the Centre to pioneer the fundamental science required to facilitate translational outcomes. This cannot be done as an afterthought of research. The translation and Impact committees will support CNBP researchers in building translational thinking, and strategy into everything we do. This will help to create an outcome based culture - that celebrates and nurtures innovation. In this way we will drive the science in directions that will create opportunities for economic and societal benefits as well as attracting to the Centre researchers seeking to make a difference.

 

Members of this committee will be announced shortly.
