Administrative Core (A)


This Core provides an administrative infrastructure that allows efficient communication between all Cores, Committees, and Participating Investigators of the project. Major roles of this Core are to provide administrative support to the Steering Committee and to assist in tracking the progress of each Scientific Core in achieving the program goals. This Core also arranges regular meetings of the Steering and Advisory Committees and the annual meeting for Participating Investigators, and works closely with the Information and Bioinformatics Core (B) to ensure that information from the Scientific Cores is collected and disseminated. In addition, the Administrative Core writes periodic reports and quarterly newsletters, and disseminates discoveries of the Consortium to the scientific community.
