This subproject is one of many research subprojects utilizing the resources provided by a Center grant funded by NIH/NCRR. The subproject and investigator (PI) may have received primary funding from another NIH source, and thus could be represented in other CRISP entries. The institution listed is for the Center, which is not necessarily the institution for the investigator.
Specific Aims :1. Maintain an administrative core to support purchasing, personnel, correspondence, with NCRR, travel, the IAC and EAC, and minutes of meetings. 2. Enrich the intellectual neuroscience community with neuroscience seminar series. 3. Establish a steering committee composed of the core leaders and project director Results: Administrative Functions The overall responsibility for the conduct of the RCMI Administrative Core rested with Program Director Joe L Martinez, until March of 2005. At that time, Dr. Guy Bailey, RCMI PI and Vice President of Academic Affairs, named Dr. Matthew Gdovin as acting Program Director. The RCMI office is located in the Bioscience Building near the program director and RCMI investigators. Dr. Martinez, and then Dr. Gdovin, managed Marissa Jimenez, the RCMI coordinator. They, with the advice of the IAC and EAC, set policy for the RCMI, attended the annual and international RCMI meeting and the annual RCMI Directors Meeting, and monitored the progress of the RCMI investigators. The coordinator carried out most day-to-day administrative functions of the RCMI. These functions include purchasing, personnel, correspondence with NCRR, travel of RCMI personnel, speakers, the IAC, the EAC, and minutes of meetings. IAC and EAC The Internal Advisory Committee and RCMI investigators met on April 28, 2005. (Please see minutes in Appendix X.) The meeting focused on the consulting services of Dr. James Antony (University of Washington). Also discussed was the annual progress report. We are planning for a July 2005 meeting of the External Advisory Committee Meeting. RCMI Seminar Series The Cajal Seminar Series for Spring 2005 sponsored seminars with eminent neuroscientists. Speakers included: February 17 Nicholas Hatsopolous, PhD University of Chicago, Assistant Professor, Department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy, ?The Language of Action in the Motor Cortex? February 24 Leslie Kay, PhD, University of Chicago, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology, ?Beyond odor coding: oscillatory and behavioral dynamics in olfactory perception? March 24 Robert Foehring, PhD University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Professor, Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, ?The slow afterhypepolarization: Relationships with spikes, calcium channels, and intracellular calcium.? March 31 Oscar Prospero-Garcia, PhD, Dept. of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, Universidad Nacional Aut noma de M xico (UNAM) ?Endocannabinoids: Sleep and Memory? April 14 Rafael Gutierrez, PhD Department of Physiology and Neuroscience, Centro de Investigaci n y Estudios Avanzados del IPN, ?SEIZING GLUTAMATE AND GABA IN THE MOSSY FIBERS? In addition to the seminars, post-talk lunch hours with Ph.D. students in our neurology Ph.D. program were included, allowing students to interact directly with the speaker. Both Neurobiology Ph.D. and M.S. students will receive course credit for attending the seminars. Plans As part of the RCMI 20th Anniversary Celebration, a symposium is being planned for October 2005. The symposium will be ? Advances in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Symposium: The role of central respiratory chemoreception.? Confirmed speakers include: Dr. James C. Leiter (Darmouth), Dr. Joseph Erlichman (St. Laurence University), Dr. George Richerson (Yale University), Dr. Robert Putnam (Wright State University), and Dr. Steve Mifflan (University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio).
