NPL scientist joins Science and Technology Facilities Council Science Board

Isabel Moraes, Principal Research Scientist at NPL has been invited by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to join their Science Board.

The Science Board is STFC’s principal scientific advisory committee and provides a strategic scientific overview and assessment of, and science advice on, all the programmes STFC supports.

Moraes joined NPL in 2017 to lead on the development of structural biology capabilities addressing the challenges of member proteins as drug targets, antimicrobial discovery, synthetic biology and cellular therapies.

One main purpose of the STFC’s Science Board is to consult with appropriate communities via its advisory panels to ensure the science and technology strategies remain the most viable of the UK. This appointment will provide Moraes and NPL with useful knowledge about scientific developments across the UK and beyond.

Moraes states: “I feel really honoured with such invitation. The STFC Science Board is very important as provides critical advice to the Council Executive. I hope to do my very best based on my professional experience and of course represent well the NPL.”
