Good governance is fundamental to the success of the SBIMB and to the confidence and trust of its investors and scientific collaborators. The Institute therefore seeks to ensure 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 ensures transparency and accountability for all funding received, and strives to adopt the highest levels of reporting

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 Institute has a functioning Advisory Board and Research Advisory Committee, which are responsible for overseeing various aspects of the Institute’s leadership and steering its scientific direction.
