We support discovery research into life, health and wellbeing, and we're taking on three worldwide health challenges: Mental Health, Climate & Health and Infectious Diseases.

  • The DPO as point of contact for enquiries from data subjects on issues relating to data protection practices, including in relation to withdrawal of consent, access requests, the "right to be forgotten", and other rights available to data subjects under data protection legislation.
