The JRO provides management support for research projects funded through the College, working closely with numerous departments across the Faculty of Medicine and external parties.
Three JRO contracts teams are responsible for negotiating and authorising research-related contracts on behalf of Imperial College with external parties including other universities, charitable bodies, government departments and commercial organisations. A separate NHS Trust team looks after contracts for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
