The goals ofthe Administrative Core are to provide the leadership ofthe CCMBM program, and the management ofthe Research Core Facilities and Enrichment Program. The CCMBM leadership represents the two flagship Departments ofthe CCMBM (Orthopaedic Surgery and Internal Medicine, Division of Bone and Mineral Diseases) and reflects the commitment ofthe two Departments to the mission ofthis program and to musculoskeletal research at Washington University. The CCMBM has three Research Cores that provide top-quality services to members of our Research Base and to other investigators at Washington University and other institutions with interest in musculoskeletal research. In the next five years, we plan to continue providing top-quality services to our Research Base and other investigators, while developing new cutting-edge technologies and programs, hinging upon the expertise and experience built in the past four years of activities. As a new direction, we will address an area of relative underachievement, i.e. the interaction between basic and clinical researchers, with the purpose of facilitating translation of basic and animal research to the clinic for the ultimate benefit of patients with musculoskeletal disorders.
The specific aims of the Administrative Core for the next five years are:
Aim 1 - Provide Leadership ofthe CCMBM, and Integrate Core Center Components and Activities;
Aim 2 - Administer the Center Enrichment Program including a Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program, Musculoskeletal Seminar Series and Summer Educational Series, Annual Symposium and Holiday Party and Poster Session;
Aim 3 - Communication with stake holders (E-Newsletter, Website);
Aim 4 - Coordinate Core Center Activities with other Programs including a mentoring program with the T32 Metabolic Skeletal Disorders Training Grant, Institute for Clinical & Translational Science, Centerfor Regenerative Medica and over Washinton University Core Facilities;
Aim 5 - Promote Awareness and Exchange Information on the Translation of Research.
