The goal of the Administrative Core is to govern and nurture the isrp to achieve its mission of conducting outstanding (and focused) research and engagement and to identify and reduce environmental exposures and adverse health effects among impacted populations.
The administrative core will serve as a focal point for the isrp and will carry out the following:
- Provide Program Leadership, Direction, Planning and Coordination
- Provide Administrative Services and Fiscal Support and Oversight
- Provide information dissemination and transfer in cooperation with the Community Engagement and Research Translation Cores
- Foster interactions with NIEHS, other Superfund Centers, and other governmental agencies.
Research progress will be assessed through the involvement of the External Advisory Committee. The Community Engagement and Research Translation Cores will function in the information dissemination and transfer functions of the Administrative Core. Overall, the Administrative Core will be the focus of contact and nurture for the isrp.
