The objectives of the Administrative Core (Core A) are to provide a robust infrastructure and communication network that promotes program faculty Interactions and data disseminafion to achieve the overall short and long-term goals of the research program. Core A is the prime decision making body for the program. Core A will: a) provide guidance and leadership on administrative and financial matters, b) facilitate communication among the research groups, cores and NIAID, c) promote scientific interactions, data sharing and discussions, d) disseminate information to the scientific community and public using the SQL database and NIH Bloinfonnatics Centers, e) host seminars and yearly meefings, and f) ensure regulatory compliance and safety for all projects and cores. Success of the Cooperative Agreement is heavily dependent upon organized communication and the exchange of time-sensitive samples and complex datasets between the Research Projects and Cores. Core A is the pipeline connecting all Projects and Cores, tasked with providing the essenfial leadership and infrastructure that provides direction, oversight and quality control for the individual and interdependent activities of each project and core, ensuring maximum collaboration, transparent use of program resources and information exchange within our research community. This is accomplished in four broad aims: administrative and fiscal management, communication management, scientific oversight, and web-based education and outreach.

Public Health Relevance

Core A is assigned the complex task of overseeing the fiscal management, dissemination of detailed data sets between the Projects and Cores, integrating concepts across projects, enabling communication, and ensuring outreach to the public. The Core will leverage the expertise of each member ofthe program to expedite discovery and achievement of the research goals.
