CLAHRC East Midlands Structure


CLAHRC East Midlands is underpinned by a strong governance and management structure to achieve a sustained legacy in applied health research. We have key representation on the Executive Group, chaired by Prof Mike Cooke.

The East Midlands Partners’ Council of lay people will ensure our work reflects the issues of greatest concern to patients and the public and will contribute in the co-production of research and implementation. The Chair of the Partners’ Council will also be a member of the CLAHRC Governance Board. Our Scientific Committee will be led by an independent Chair.
