The Administration Core C will identify and accomplish administrative tasks related to the P01 and facilitate the communication and dissemination of research data among the investigators. P01 leadership will use Core C to facilitate the oversight of the research projects and cores. Core C will ensure effective and rapid communication and cooperation among investigators, projects, and cores. This core will also assist in sharing our research data with other investigators both within and outside of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) with a special emphasis to link Dr. Pao and the RP3 team at Vanderbilt and Dr. Sordella at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory with all facets of the program project through the P01 intranet wiki and videoconferencing. The Administration Core C will provide: (1) administrative services;regulatory and reporting services, including preparation of annual reports and renewals;(2) budget management;(3) publication management and oversight;(4) wiki/intranet website management;(5) videoconferencing for all P01 activities;(6) scheduling of P01 "work-in-progress" conferences for the investigators and yearly face-to-face presentations to our advisory committees;and (6) support of the oversight activities of the Executive and Scientific Advisory committees. The Administration Core C centralizes, expands, and improves the operational capabilities of all the individual research projects and cores, avoids duplication, and ensures optimum utilization of resources. The MSK Lung P01 Administrator supported by this Core will meet twice monthly with the Principal Investigators and quarterly with the Executive Committee to assist them in monitoring the status of operations so that the research supported by the grant proceeds as rapidly and efficiently as possible. The MSK Lung P01 Administrator, working with the Principal Investigators, will prepare and distribute a yearly progress report for the Executive and the Internal and External Scientific Advisory Committees to assist in their annual review and oversight. The Administration Core C supports the Principal Investigators, Executive Committee, Scientific Advisory Committees, research projects and other cores;and provides services that are essential for the P01 to function as an integrated research program to develop new targets for treatment for persons with lung cancers.

Public Health Relevance

Lung cancers are America's leading cancer killers, responsible for 158,000 deaths this year. This grant addresses the two most critical roadblocks to improving the care and curability of persons with these illnesses: (1) understanding how cancers spread (metastasis) and (2) the lack of highly effective medicines to prevent spread or to eradicate cancers that have spread from the lung. Core C is critical to this effort.
