Dr Allison Jackson

Head of Research Operations

My role is to work with colleagues in Research and Innovation Services, the Vice Principal’s office, and other University Services to deliver the University’s strategies for research in line with the University’s 2020 vision. I am leading the University’s operational management of the REF2021 preparation and submission. I oversee the Research arm of Research and Innovation Services, which includes the Research Policy Team, the Postgraduate Research Service Team, the Research Impact Team, and the Research Communications Team.

Prior to this, I was the Executive Director of the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance, and the manager of Glasgow Polyomics and the Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund programme for the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences at The University of Glasgow. I have over ten years of research experience in infection biology. I am a Young Academy of Scotland member.
