The UCL Personalised Medicine Domain Steering Group serves the research community by promoting, coordinating and developing activities that enable new research activity, improve communication and facilitate career development.
The Steering Group will generally promote and/or undertake any activities that it considers to be of strategic importance and in the best interests of the personalised medicine community at UCL whilst also being responsive to the needs of individuals and groups.
The Steering Group reports directly to the UCL Vice-Provost (Health) and serves as an autonomous but not an executive body; i.e. its activities are not directed by senior management, and it does not direct the strategies or running of Centres, Departments or Institutes. Its membership is broadly representative and through the establishment of working groups for specific tasks and discussion forums it will seek to ensure involvement of researchers from across the community. It receives seed-funding from UCL but also raises funds from external sources for specific events and to advance initiatives from the personalised medicine community at UCL.

The UCL Personalised Medicine Domain aims to harness the breadth and depth of personalised medicine research activity across the university and its partner hospitals, to deliver innovative patient-targeted medicines and therapies.
Broader objectives include:
- maintaining a high profile, cross-disciplinary personalised medicine community throughout UCL and its partner hospitals
- facilitating this community in finding appropriate partners and resources to secure major funding and building commercialisation strategies
- supporting career development
- communicating personalised medicine research activities and funding opportunities across UCL, and to external audiences.
