Meet the team

To achieve our ambitious vision, we rely not only on our brilliant researchers, but also on our hard-working core team.

Working alongside academic and clinical colleagues, our BRC core team supports the delivery of our research programme – providing invaluable expertise including leadership and operations, project management, patient and public involvement, industry engagement, communications and administrative support.

In addition to day-to-day management, our core team represents the BRC at regional and national meetings, drives forward national projects, and contributes to strategic direction and decision making.
