Project Summary (2005-2008)

The Administrative Core for multi-investigator program projects plays an important role in the success of the overall research and training enterprise and in the communication of results to various stakeholders. The overall management of the SBRP Project at Texas A&M University is coordinated by a staff assistant who interacts with scientists from the various projects and facilitate their formal interactions (monthly meetings). The Administrative Core also organizes meetings with external advisory committees, plans travel, and conducts other SBRP-related activities. In addition, a business manager has recently been hired to focus on fiscal issues of the program. The focus of Core staff is to maintain a structure that optimizes conditions for investigators to study the overall environmental and human health impacts of Superfund-related toxic chemical wastes or mixtures. The objectives of the Administrative Core include:

  1. Coordination of quarterly meetings for project graduate students and investigators, as well as meetings with the External Advisory Committee or USEPA Science Advisory Board; and,
  2. Texas A&M University and the Health Science Center. This Core will also facilitate interactions of investigators with community outreach programs.
