The ARC CoE in Plant Cell Walls had a Governance Structure overseen by a Governing Board, chaired by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research) of the University of Adelaide, Professor Mike Brooks.

The Centre’s Executive Management Committee (EMC), chaired by the Centre Director, monitored progress towards the Centre’s performance targets, took advice from a Scientific Advisory Committee and implemented scientific direction and related policy via node leaders in the three Australian collaborating institutions.

A Project Leadership Team (PLT) directed the day-to-day research activities across the three nodes of the Centre.
