1. OBJECTIVE The purpose of the Administrative Core is to maintain the cohesive and efficient operation of the Iowa Cochlear Implant Clinical Research Center Grant. It provides the personnel and facilities for a central administrative structure that ensures the successful management of this multidisciplinary project. The Administrative Core will also monitor the scholastic and scientific merit of the research program. 2. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION 2.1 General Description The University of Iowa Cochlear Implant Clinical Research Center is composed of faculty of the College of Medicine (Department of Otolaryngology?Head and Neck Surgery, Neuroscience Program), the College of Liberal Arts (Departments of Speech Pathology and Audiology, Music, and Psychology), College of Public Health, and the Graduate College. The Center is under the direction of the University of Iowa Vice President for Research, Dr Jordan Cohen, PhD and the Dean of the College of Medicine, Dr. Paul Rothman, MD.
