Alan Jones | Senior Project Manager

Jones, Alan

Alan manages projects and Agile development in the COSMIC team and has worked at Sanger as a Project Manager since 2014.

I have been managing projects for 20 years. I have been in the Institute's PMO since early 2014, where I have successfully delivered a wide range of projects across teams and campus including:

  • The implementation of the HiSeq X sequencing fleet
  • The new Sanger Institute website
  • The first release of Aker, an ordering system to enable our scientists to electronically order sequencing for our scientific pipelines.

I joined the COSMIC team in 2019 and implemented an Agile approach to software development.
