The Administrative Core of the Center for the Study of Complex Malaria in India (CSCMi), headquartered at the NIMR in New Delhi, will provide day-to-day and strategic administrative and accounting support, reports of finances, communications infrastructure, liaison with suppliers, travel and visa support, and website support for the Center. The Administrative Core will also provide logistical support for, and document the activities of, the Scientific Acfivities committee which will be established to review and advise on CSCMi research project progress. The Administrative Core will provide similar support for the annual ICEMR Workshop when it is held at the CSCMi, as well as logistical and travel support CSCMi employees attending the Workshops at other ICEMRs. Thus the Core will be a indispensible component of CSCMi function, enabling the Center to reach its goal of becoming a multidisciplinary research center in India that integrates clinical and field studies with laboratory, molecular, and genomic methods for malaria control and prevention.

Public Health Relevance

Malaria is a major public health problem in India, the world's largest democracy and second most populous country. This Core provides all the administrative and accounting support needed to operate the the Center for the Study of Complex Malaria in India, which is dedicated to enhancing the malaria intervention and control programs of Indian government organizations.
