Administrative Core: This core unit will be responsible for the overall administration and management of the Program Project. This core, which is responsible for four projects and four cores will be directed by Steven R. Houser, Ph.D., the Principal Investigator of the Program Project Grant. The Administrative core functions include: 1 .Overall scientific coordination of the research objectives of the Program Project Grant. This includes the review and recording of scientific progress made in all component projects and cores. 2. Follow and implement all guidelines for Program Project Grant, including administering the budget and subcontracts in accordance with all NIH, NHLBI and Temple University policies.3.Monitor ali expenditures for accuracy, fiscally responsibility for the projects and cores. 4. Facilitates and an-anges for interactions among the project leaders, direct collaboration with other institutions working in related areas. Arange, support and direct regular meetings of the Intemal and External Advisory Committee with the PPG investigators and core directors. S.Conduct and lead bi-weekly research data meetings that will be held for investigators, fellows, technicians and students involved in the projects and cores. Internet based meetings will be held so that all investigators at Cincinnati and at Jefferson can participate without having to travel to Temple. Core A will hold a bi-annual face to face meeting for all project core leaders and key personnel. 6.Support publication of new data resulting.from research projects. 7. Prepare annual reports and renewals for the Program Project Grant. This core will also be responsible for evaluation of progress of all portions of this PPG. This will be done in consultations with Intemal and Extemal advisory boards. The core will organize annual retreats so that students and fellows working on this project have an opportunity to present their work. This core will work with counterparts at collaborating Institutions to ensure progress is made at all sites.
