Overall Structure of CMADP

The Administrative Core supports the CMADP research infrastructure which is comprised of three scientific core facilities and several research and pilot projects. The scientific cores are supported through investments in personnel, supplies, and equipment and interact directly with CMADP leadership to help them accomplish their projects.

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 CMADP's External Advisory Committee. Prior to finalizing decisions on funding such project grants, CMADP leadership will submit the project proposals 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. The Administrative Core also organizes 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.
