The Global Biodata Coalition is a membership organisation bringing together public and charitable research funders from around the world. Its governance and operations are set out in a Letter of Understanding.
GBC members are funders of biodata resources that sign the LoU and agree to make an annual financial contribution or who provide in-kind support. Currently there are 11 members, listed on the support page.
The strategic direction of the GBC is set by our Board of Funders, who represent the members. Our work program is managed by a small secretariat, under the leadership of our Executive Director, Guy Cochrane. Please see Who We Are for more details.
At present the GBC is a virtual organization. We are working to develop a legal entity. Our funds are managed by the Human Frontier Science Program Organization.
