Project Summary (2006-2010)

The Administrative Core is responsible for the coordination, planning, assessment, project accounting, and administrative support to the research faculty and staff of the University of Iowa Superfund Basic Research Program (ISBRP). Research efforts are coordinated through regular meetings of faculty, students and research staff, where new findings are discussed and ideas and concepts tested. The assessment process culminates in an annual meeting of all of the research faculty and the External Advisory Committee, where each project is reviewed and recommendations made. The Director of the ISBRP formally assesses the progress of the overall program on an annual basis, with advice from the External Advisory Committee as well as from an Executive Committee that is composed of the project and core leaders of the ISBRP. Planning is accomplished through a process that allows each investigator to propose new or continuing work that is reviewed by the researchers as a group and the External Advisory Committee. A biostatistician assists in planning and is available for consultation and planning. Project accounting is coordinated through the Program Administrator, who also oversee the day-to-day activities of the ISBRP. Information dissemination to community groups and stakeholders is carried out by the Core Leader of the Outreach Core. The ISBRP communicates with national, state, and local governmental agencies through the Research Translation Core. The Administrator serves as a regular point of contact both among the ISBRP researchers, the External Advisors and university contacts. The Administrative Core coordinates all reports required by the sponsoring agency and encourages regular participation in the annual SBRP meetings and workshops organized and supported by NIEHS.
