LSUHSC CARC Administrative Core The purpose of the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) New Orleans Comprehensive Alcohol-HIV/AIDS Research Center (CARC) is to conduct cutting-edge translational research on the causes and biomedical consequences of alcohol use and abuse and their impact on biomedical and psychosocial comorbid conditions of persons living with HIV/AIDS. The goal of the CARC is to generate evidence-based knowledge on the interaction of alcohol and HIV disease that will inform health care providers and will lead to effective primary care-based interventions to decrease risky alcohol use, HIV transmission and improve health outcomes. The Administrative Core of the CARC will provide oversight and the organizational framework for the direction, management, and coordination of all activities. Specifically, the Administrative Core will (1) monitor the performance and productivity of the individual research components and cores; (2) manage the budget and fiscal activities of the CARC; (3) supervise the CARC personnel; (4) provide data collection, management, and analysis support, and (5) provide oversight for the educational, enrichment and dissemination functions of the CARC. In essence, the Administrative Core is responsible for centralizing, coordinating, and integrating research and administrative components of the CARC. Dr. Molina, Principal Investigator and Director, and Dr. Nelson, Co- Director, will direct all CARC-related activities in consultation with the Intramural Center Committee. The Administrative Core will facilitate logistics for synergistic, productive, and seamless interaction among the participants to substantially enhance the success of CARC activities. The Administrative Core will foster formal and informal exchanges among members of the CARC and the intra- and extramural scientific community to allow for peer-review, idea cross-fertilization, and development of new collaborative projects focused on the biomedical health consequences of alcohol abuse. The Administrative Core is a mature, integrated component of our CARC with a successful record in supervising, promoting, and developing comprehensive, thematically focused research programs that are both productive and cost-effective in an area of great clinical relevance.
