The CRCL is directed by Patrick Mehlen, who is assisted by Charles Dumontet and Véronique Maguer-Satta as Deputy Directors, as well as the following committees: the Board of Directors and the Planning Committee (includes team leaders). These two committees define the scientific strategy, the financial management and the human resources management of the CRCL.
The Council of the CRCL comprises elected representatives of the different professions held by members of the CRCL (PhD students, post-doc fellows, technical staff, researchers and lecturers) as well as ex-officio and appointed members. This committee is informed of all important issues regarding the Center and is responsible for discussing all organizational, financial and administrative aspects occuring within the CRCL. Furthermore, this committee makes proposals to improve the workflow and organization of the Center.
In addition, the CRCL can rely on an international Scientific Advisory Board, composed of independent researchers selected for their scientific expertise, their strategic vision of research and their international recognition.
