Administrative Core (A) is the innovative and synergistic engine driving the Penn CFAR, a collaboration ofthe University of Pennsylvania and its Perelman School of Medicine, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and Wistar Institute. Core A establishes and oversees Shared Resource Cores, educational activities, a Developmental Core, mentoring activities of junior investigators, and initiatives that build strong ties to the campus and community. Core A will continue to be led by Director James Hoxie, MD and Co- Director Ronald Collman, MD. Core A works closely with a governing Executive Committee, Internal Advisory Board, External Advisory Committee, and Community Advisory Board. In addition to the Cores, Core A oversees the CFAR's 4 Research Areas (Virology/Pathogenesis, Clinical/Therapeutics, Immunology vaccine, Behavioral &Social Sciences) and the new Scientific Working Groups (SWGs) (Viral Hepatitis &HIV Co-Infection, HIV Eradication &Functional Control, AIDS &Addiction). Core A provides the management and scientific direction for the CFAR and establishes the necessary linkages among participants. Core A's primary responsibilities are to 1) facilitate communication among CFAR members;2) lead a robust and transparent strategic planning process: 3) ensure that opportunities in emerging scientific areas and technologies in HIV/AIDS research are recognized and pursued: 4) ensure that Core facilities serve the research needs of members and comply with the policies by which they were established;5) enforce sound fiscal management and accountability for Core activities and Developmental funds;6) create multidisciplinary and vibrant educational programs for faculty and students;7) provide resources, organizational capacity, and scientific direction to CFAR SWGs;8) pursue strong outreach programs that address the needs of domestic and international populations most affected by the HIV epidemic;9) foster collaborations throughout the national CFAR network: and 10) promote diversity and inclusion in all CFAR activities. Core A is deeply committed to initiatives that build strong ties for the CFAR to the campus and the Philadelphia community, the CFAR network, and to international programs of Core I and inter-CFAR collaborations.
For 14 years, Core A has led the Penn CFAR in creating an interactive and collaborative HIV/AIDS research climate, vibrant educational activities, and innovative community outreach programs. Core A conducts, coordinates, and monitors CFAR activities to build infrastructure that fosters interdisciplinary and translational HIV/AIDS research and provides scientific leadership. It has also played the leadership role in the strategic planning process that has defined the exciting action plan for the next funding period.
