The Enterics Research Investigational Network Cooperative Research Center (ERIN CRC) at the University of Washington will be a multisite, multiregional research program under the guidance of the Director Samuel I. Miller and the Administrative Core Leader John Kemner. The Administrative Core of the ERIN CRC will provide strategic planning, oversight and management ofthe program and its resources.
The specific aims of the Administrative Core are to: 1) Organize and manage the resources of the ERIN CRC including a clinical bacterial strain collection, 2) Organize meetings and facilitate communication between components of the ERIN CRC, 3) Facilitate local, regional, national, and international collaborations, 4) Prepare reports and measure outcomes, 5) Manage intellectual property and regulatory issues, and 6) Administer the Research Pilot Projects Program.
The administrative core will assist the ERIN CRC projects in their investigations on the emergence and prevalence of nontypoidal salmonellosis by providing coordination, management, and scientific direction. The Center is investigating mechanisms of prevalence, transmission, and carriage of this disease, specifically comparing conditions on the African continent with the developed world.
