Sir Patrick Vallance to become Chairman of Natural History Museum

The Government’s Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance is to become the next Chairman of the Natural History Museum. Lord Stephen Green is stepping down as non-executive Chairman of the Board of Trustees.

Vallance said he had loved the museum since his first visits as a child, and it had led to his career in science. He is expected to take over the role from October 2022.

“It inspired me to pursue a career in science and continues to inspire wonder in visitors of all ages as well as being a world leading scientific research institute. I am hugely looking forward to the opportunity to contribute to its continuing success,” he said.

Dr Douglas Gurr, Director of the Natural History Museum said “The Natural History Museum is well known as a much-loved visitor attraction but is also a world-leading scientific research centre working on solutions for the planetary emergency – from biodiversity loss to climate change.  We are thrilled that Sir Patrick will be joining to drive forward our mission of creating advocates for the planet and building a world in which both people and planet can thrive.”
