Susy Young

Head of Research Operations

Susy is our Research Operations Manager and works closely with our scientists on project management and coordination of all research and large consulting projects to ensure the projects run smoothly, efficiently and are delivered on time and budget. This includes managing the financial and administrative aspects of the work, especially for large projects that we are coordinating/leading e.g. BIORIMA (H2020), APIC (NERC), TAPHIA (MRC). Susy was Project Manager of 3 large integrated European projects (HEIMTSA, ENPRA and MARINA) and 1 large government project (EDPHiS), coordinating 10+ partner institutions across the UK and Europe.

Susy has more than 25 years’ experience working in a scientific environment, 20 of which have been in managing research quality and processes. She developed, implemented and continues to manage a variety of now well established project management systems within IOM. An accompanying guidance document describes these systems and procedures, and is designed to help and advise scientists on the operation of the systems to ensure consistency and quality.

Susy carries out reviews of contracts and regularly liaises with our Finance section to ensure the smooth running of the contractual aspects of research and consulting projects. She has in depth knowledge of a variety of funding models and guidelines and advises regularly on the rules and regulations relating to them.
