Core A: Administrative

The Administrative Core will serve as the central coordination point for all YHN-SPORE investigators, with responsibility for strategic and scientific direction, and monitoring progress of all projects and cores towards the translational goals of the SPORE.

The Core Director (Barbara Burtness) and Co-Directors (Edward Kaftan, Erica Golemis, Wendell Yarborough) will have responsibility for leading the SPORE, setting translational research priorities, identifying new translational research opportunities, monitoring the progress of all projects, cores and developmental projects and determining changes in direction of projects, cores and translational research as needed.

Interactions among YHN-SPORE investigators will be facilitated by Core A to accelerate the translation of laboratory findings to the bedside through rational and rigorous translational and clinical studies.
