The Administrative Core will provide support for each of the Projects of this P01, as well as the Metabolism/Histopathology Core (Core B).
The aims of the Administrative Core are to ensure that the resources within the P01 are distributed equitably to the investigators and all rules and regulations of the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health are followed. The Administrative Core will coordinate monthly meetings of the investigators and their laboratories, and facilitate communication between our investigators and the External Advisory Board. The Administrative Core will also coordinate the quarterly regional meetings held at Princeton University and hosted by Dr. Joshua Rabinowitz. Finally, the Administrative Core will work with the business administration office of the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute (AFCRI) to ensure that funds are subcontracted to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) for Project 1 led by Dr. Craig Thompson. The finances of the P01 will be organized by Mr. James Riley, the AFCRI Director of Fiscal Operations, who will meet monthly with the P01 PI and quarterly with each Project and Core Leader. Ms. Dana Opiela will coordinate travel arrangements for the members of the P01, as well as the advisors who will visit U. Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Ms. Jaclyn Regan will coordinate travel arrangements for the members of the P01 located at MSKCC. Both Ms. Opiela and Ms. Regan will provide administrative support for each of the P01 investigators for efforts related to the program. It is anticipated that through the combined efforts of the Core Director (Dr. Simon), Mr. Riley, Ms. Opiela, and Ms. Regan that the research effort of this P01 will run with optimum efficiency.
