Leadership, Governance and Management

The HPRU’s Joint Steering Committee is the senior management, strategy and decision-making forum of the Unit. It comprises the Unit Directors, UKHSA Leads, Kings’ College Leads, MRC Toxicology Unit at the University of Cambridge Lead, Knowledge Mobilisation Lead, Public and Community Oversight Group Chair and Unit Managers of the HPRUs in Chemical and Radiation Threats and Hazards and in Environmental Exposures and Health, ensuring direct representation of these core areas in the highest governance structure of the Unit.

The Steering Committee is responsible for identifying research priorities for the HPRU work programme and ensuring they relate to UKHSA research and policy needs, supported by advisory groups and representatives from across the Unit’s research areas and core areas of activity.

The scope of these advisory groups and committees encompasses the work of this HPRU and of two other closely related units, the HPRU in Environmental Exposures and Health and the MRC Centre for Environment and Health.
