Mr. Thomas has been with the OUHSC for 10 years and is very convensant with the fiscal and grant management policies of OUHSC and federal funding agencies including NIH. Mr. Thomas will meet monthly with each investigator to review their accounts and mentor them in the fiscal management of sponsored research grants. Salaries for the PI, administrative staff, mentoring faculty, core directors will be paid through this core module. In addition, this core will administer the fiscal accounting for the proposed pilot projects. Coordinating meetings, travel and activities of the Internal Advisory Committee and the External Advisory Committee will be the responsibility of the Administrative Assistant, Ms. Booth, under the direction of the PI.

Public Health Relevance

Cancer represents a major health burden in the US. Ultimately, alleviating the burden of cancer will come from research: the generation of new ideas and, consequently, the development of novel agents. A COBRE grant will allow the Oklahoma Cancer Center to provide PJIs a focused mentoring experience to help them mature into independently-funded investigators contributing to the overall fight against cancer.
