Organisation - Centre for Human Brain Health

 

The management of the Centre for Human Brain Health (CHBH) is the responsibility of two key committees: the Management Committee, and the Operations Committee.

  • The Management Committee is responsible for the short- and medium-term oversight of the Centre. Its members represent a broad range of expertise tied to the facilities the Centre supports. The Management Committee is responsible for budgetary oversight of the CHBH.
  • The Operations Committee oversees the technical and operational administration of the Centre to ensure a robust and efficient environment that facilitates members' research and teaching. 

The Management Committee is chaired by the Centre's Co-Directors, Professor Ole Jensen and Dr Andrew Bagshaw, and the Operations Committee is chaired by the Centre's Operations Manager, Ms Jessica Mylchreest.

The CHBH procedure for purchasing new hardware and software is as follows:

  • Items with a value greater than £500 must secure the approval of the CHBH Management Committee. Those proposing the items must email a justification and quote to the CHBH Operations Administrator for inclusion in the next CHBH Management Committee agenda.
  • In exceptional circumstances where an item must be ordered before the next CHBH Management Committee meeting, please email the CHBH Directors and Operations manager with a justification and quote. Information about the purchase will be provided at the next CHBH Management Committee meeting.
  • The CHBH is working towards a system of twice-yearly budget rounds, where requests for new hardware and software are presented and considered by a panel. Decisions will be communicated shortly afterwards.
