During the strategic plan period, KEMRI reviewed its organizational structure in order to enhance coordination of scientific and support activities and ensure effective service delivery. The new organizational structure provides for the Board of Management as the supreme governance organ while the management is headed by the Director General. In line with its core business, KEMRI organizational structure has taken into account lessons learnt so far in the implementation of the previous organizational structures and its mandate. The new organizational structure has created six directorates namely; Directorate of Research Capacity Building, Directorate of Research and Development, Directorate of Partnerships and Grant Management, Directorate of Strategy & Compliance, Directorate of Corporate Services and Corporation Secretary and Directorate of Legal Services. Figure below presents the organizational structure
that will deliver the identified strategies.
