Good governance is fundamental to the success of the SBIMB and to the confidence and trust of its investors and scientific collaborators. The Institute ensures that good governance and responsible scientific and business principles and practices are fully integrated into its culture, values and day-to-day running. The SBIMB practices transparency and accountability for all funding received, and strives to provide high quality reporting on its activities.

The governance of the Institute, including oversight of its financial well-being, funding strategy and sustainability, is the responsibility of the Vice-Chancellor (VC), and is delegated to either the Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Research (DVC-R) or the Dean of an appropriate Faculty.

The SBIMB Advisory Board and Research Advisory Committee are responsible for overseeing the Institute’s leadership and activities, and steering its scientific direction.
