The Sanger Institute is research led and this means the Management Operations support teams are inclusive in their approach to planning and decision making. We strive to be evidence based and make management decisions that are timely and transparent.
People from very different backgrounds and professional areas of expertise come together in Management Operations, with our world-leading researchers and colleagues in Science Operations we make the Sanger Institute a successful place to work.
Many of our teams support the overall operation of the Wellcome Genome Campus. This is a broad and challenging set of responsibilities and to achieve this, Management Operations has adopted a top-level objective to help structure the support we provide:
"To work creatively, collaboratively and transparently in an environment of mutual respect with staff and entities on the Genome Campus to ensure we provide highly effective support, infrastructure and services in the most cost-effective way."
Dr Martin Dougherty
Chief Operating Officer
Martin is accountable for leadership across a range of management and support functions underpinning the research programmes and Genome Campus operations. These include areas such as HR and organisational development, finance and H&S, through to capital projects, facilities management and research administration.

Management Operations is responsible for the services, facilities and H&S across of the Wellcome Genome Campus. The activities of the Sanger Institute and EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute are at the core of the Campus. Also supported is Wellcome Genome Campus Connecting Science. Finally, we have opened the first Biodata Innovation Centre on Campus to help drive our agenda to support translation and enterprise around genomics and biodata.
Many senior managers in Management Operation work closely with their counterparts at the Wellcome Trust. Where possible we work synergistically whilst recognising that the Sanger Institute and Genome Campus have their own specific requirements, driven by the nature of our research.
