The Trust was established in 1991 to commemorate the work of the late Professor W V Mayneord, and Major C S Phillips. Both were pioneers in the development of radiation physics applied to medicine. The three founding bodies of the Trust were the Institute of Physics , the British Institute of Radiology and the Institute of Physical Sciences in Medicine (now IPEM). Each body nominates two trustees who serve for three years. The object of the Trust is to provide post-graduate education for PhD level students, by means of biennial Summer Schools
