Mike, who is Regius Professor of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, has been on the Board of Governors since January 2012. 

Wellcome’s chair Eliza Manningham-Buller says: "Mike’s new role will allow us to benefit from even more of his expertise."

Mike says: "I look forward very much to serving Wellcome as deputy to Eliza. Wellcome is an extraordinary organisation. To assist with its mission is an extraordinary privilege. I would like to thank sincerely the outgoing Deputy Chair, Kay, whose example in that role will be an inspiration." 

As we announced earlier this month, Fiona Powrie is joining Wellcome as a new Governor in January 2018. She’s Director of the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology.
