The organisational structure has been designed to ensure that the strategy, research, capacity building, stakeholder engagement, value for money and impact on health protection delivery are all subject to regular, robust scrutiny.



HPRU: Management Team:  Day to day management is carried out by an HPRU Management Team comprising the Director (O’Brien), Deputy Director (McLauchlin), University Leads (Maiden, Hunter and Narbad) and the full-time Project Manager.

Steering Committee: Comprising all Theme Leaders together with the Management Team, the Steering Committee meets quarterly to guide scientific strategy and monitor existing projects and the overall scientific portfolio.

Theme Leaders: Are accountable for progress towards the aims and objectives of their themes. They will oversee their research portfolios and the progress of individual projects. Theme Leaders organise meetings (face to face or via tele-/video-conference) with the researchers in their theme and report progress to the Research Steering Committee and External Advisory Panel.
