The Administrative Core provides coordination of the overall research effort and administrative leadership for the Center as a whole, including but not limited to: administration of research and pilot projects, faculty mentoring, facilitation of external project proposal reviews, organization of seminars and workshops, preparation of annual progress reports to the NIH, accounting and management support, organization of mentoring experiences, infrastructure development and budget oversight, project proposal review for funding, proposals for funding, budgeting, coordination of seminars and short courses, IAC, and EAC. Three scientific Core facilities are supported within the CMADP. These scientific Cores are supported through investments in personnel, supplies, and equipment and interact directly with the principal investigators to help them accomplish their projects. The overall structure of CMADP is shown below.
All Project grant recipients are selected for participation in the CMADP-funded program based on submission of their proposals for review by external experts, receipt of a favorable recommendation for funding by the external reviewers, and final support of such recommendation by both the Internal Advisory Committee (IAC) and the External Advisory Committee (EAC) of CMADP. Prior to finalizing decisions on funding such Project Grants, the PI and Co-I will submit the Project proposals and reviews to NIGMS Program Officers for review and approval. It is expected that there will be a greater number of proposals submitted for funding than will ultimately receive funding from CMADP. Core A will also organize the external review of proposals for project funding, and the communication of results from Projects and scientific Cores through the sponsorship of scientific meetings and symposia.
