Imperial College AHSC is governed jointly by the partner organisations and serviced by the AHSC Directorate.

The AHSC oversees cross-institutional activities that support its mission. Opportunities to engage in research and hear about the AHSC’s work can be found in the For Staff section.

In addition,  staff are proactively engaged in developing new AHSC initiatives through project-specific working groups, workshops and other meetings. For example, in our Priority Programmes where multidisciplinary, inter-organisational interactions facilitate identification and delivery of new research opportunities.

The AHSC governance diagram provides an overview of organisational arrangements.

These reflect the structure encompassing all partners as well as those previously established under the bilateral partnership between Imperial and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
