Administrative Core

The administrative Core will provide oversight on all aspects of the COBRE. The specific Aims are as follows:

  1. To facilitate mentoring of target faculty, enhance use of research resources and monitor the transition of target faculty into independent, well-funded investigators.
  2. To recruit 10 new tenure-track faculty and provide them seed funds to initiate research on dietary supplements and inflammation.
  3. To oversee the financial and personnel management of all the projects and cores as well as develop long term goals.

The long-term objectives include:

  1. Advancement of entrepreneurial activity, including submission of SBIR/STRR grants and establishment of start-ups
  2. Development of NIH Program Project grants (PPGs)
  3. Submission of NIH training grants.
  4. Facilitating clinical research and trials.  

Together, these activities should lead to the development of a critical mass of highly competitive scientists supported through NIH R01/Program Projects/Career Development Awards/Training Grants serving the local, regional and national unmet needs in the area of Dietary Supplements and Inflammation.
