Home About The Rosalind Franklin Institute Governance Theme Advisory Panels

Theme Governance

The Theme leads, appointed in 2017, have assembled theme advisory panels comprising of experts in their academic and industrial communities, to offer advice and challenge as we work with the community to develop roadmaps for each of the themes. Additionally, the roadmaps are developed with input from the leads in other themes, ensuring that the overall direction of the themes is complementary and work packages are shared where appropriate.
