Administrative Core

The Administrative Core is responsible for the organizational aspects of the COBRE including reviewing proposals for funding, budgeting, coordination of seminars and short courses, IAC, and EAB. 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 Board (EAB) of CMADP. Prior to finalizing decisions on funding such Project Grants, the PI and Co-Is 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.

"Counting molecules, dodging blood cells: real-time molecular measurements directly in the living body"
The development of technology capable of continuously tracking the levels of drugs, metabolites, and biomarkers in situ in the body would revolutionize our understanding of health and our ability to detect and treat disease. It would, for example, provide clinicians with a real-time window into organ function and would enable therapies guided by patient-specific, real-time pharmacokinetics, opening a new dimension in personalized medicine. In response my group has pioneered the development of a “biology-inspired” electrochemical approach to monitoring specific molecules that supports real-time measurements of arbitrary molecular targets (irrespective of their chemical reactivity) directly in awake, fully ambulatory subjects.
