Head Of Strategy

As Head of Strategy I lead on the Institute’s five yearly Quinquennial strategy and funding review with our core funder Wellcome. Communicating, embedding and monitoring the organisational and scientific strategy all forms part of this role.       

Our mission for the new Quinquennium at the Institute is to use information from genome sequences to advance understanding of biology and improve health.  We deliver this through world leading science at scale investing in genome technology and projects that could not easily be conducted anywhere else.

Outside of the Quinquennial review we continually monitor and adapt our strategy to ensure that we:

  • Remain a global research leader
  • Recruit and retain our thought leaders
  • Maintain the level of scale and funding
  • Maintain our position at the leading edge of technology
